Liverpool reject Southampton bid for Sakho

Liam Hanna by Liam Hanna @LiamPHanna - 0 1,222

Liverpool have rejected a loan bid from Southampton for Mamadou Sakho as the Reds are only interested in selling the player.

Southampton made an approach to sign the France international until the end of the season, but Liverpool are only interested in selling Sakho, who is yet to make a single appearance for the club this season.

Sakho, 26, fell out with Jurgen Klopp during a pre-season tour to the United States and is not expected to play for the club again.

However, Liverpool see no sense in loaning the player out and are only considering a permanent switch for the player.

It is reported that the Reds want £20m for the former PSG man and it is not known if any clubs are prepared to pay the asking price.

The Saints are hoping to add a centre-half to their ranks this transfer window as long-serving defender Jose Fonte has handed in a transfer request and is expected to leave St. Mary's this month.
