Agger wants Liverpool stay as Man City prepare improved bid

Daniel Agger admits he wants to stay at Liverpool saying he “can’t imagine” playing for another English club amid speculation Manchester City are preparing a fresh bid the Daily Mail report.

Red boss Brendan Rodgers revealed last week that he would consider letting the Denmark international leave should he be the subject of a “massive bid” from any potential suitor.

Premier League champions City have been strongly linked with a move for the 27-year-old  in recent weeks as manager Roberto Mancini chases defensive reinforcements ahead of the new season.

Rumours intensified that he was bound for the Etihad Stadium following Rodgers’ acknowledgement that every player has his price with Mancini already seeing two offers rejected.

However the Agger, who is currently on international duty, says he is unaware of any interest and is in no rush to end his six-year spell at Anfield but intimated that the situation could be taken out of his hands.

“I have not been told anything by the club regarding the transfer,” Agger told Danish website “It is not up to me to judge whether it’s weird or not. That is how the club has decided that it should be. I can not do anything.”

“This period is every year, but I take it quietly with a smile. There has not been anything from the club so far, there’s no reason for me to be worried. I know there has been something from Manchester City, but I don’t know what Liverpool thinks of it.

“I’m fine with my situation. The club must find out what they want. I have heard nothing from them. I’d rather be here, but it’s not me who has the decision at the moment.

“Liverpool may just make the transfer, even though I have two years left. But no, I have not changed my mind on the subject when I said I will not play for other English clubs than Liverpool, but sometimes you can still get in a situation where it’s not your decision.

“I will not stay in a place where I am not wanted, but I’d rather be here. This is my priority.”
