Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has revealed that he still hopes to bring in “one or two” more signings in January, having allowed youngster Michael Ngoo to join Hearts on loan until the end of the season.
As Goal.com exclusively revealed on Thursday, the England youth international has become the second Reds player to join the Jambos in the space of the week by following Danny Wilson to Tynecastle.
And, whilst Rodgers does not expect that to be the last piece of business the Merseyside club do this month, he is now targeting arrivals rather than departures.
He told reporters: “We hope to do some business between now and the end of the month. The owners have been brilliant and supporting.
“We’ve got a young player who’ll go out on loan to get some experience but apart from that I don’t expect people [to go]. One or two, maybe, to come in.
“We know we still need one or two additions more. The club is doing everything it possible can to assist me in that. If we can, great. If not, we’ll have to review it again in the summer.”
Ngoo could be in line to make his Hearts debut this weekend, as the Scottish club take on Inverness Caledonian Thistle in the Scottish Cup.
