In breaking news, Clint Dempsey has turned down a move to Aston Villa even though Fulham and Villa agreed a £7m deal.
Dempsey is insisting that he wants to move to Liverpool instead.
Brendan Rodgers, meanwhile, refused to talk about Dempsey in his latest press conference.
The Reds seem to be favoring a loan deal move for Daniel Sturridge, but Chelsea will probably only let Sturridge go if the Blues sign German international Andre Schurrle.
So for Dempsey, it appears to be Liverpool or bust.
