King Kenny still keen to recruit

Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish is planning to further bolster his squad during the summer's transfer window, having already acquired Jordan Henderson and Charlie Adam.

Dalglish insists his work in the window is far from done, despite having outlaid over £20 million on his two latest recruits, and admits some of his current crop may be forced to leave the club to make space for fresher faces.

"We are happy with the business we have done so far," said Dalglish. "Hopefully we will do some more business before the window closes but I'm not going to sit here and give you names because that's disrespectful.

"We are looking to bring other players in and that could mean we expect some to leave. That's football. But we have a while to go yet and we'll see what we can do."

After taking over in January and bringing in Andy Carroll and Luis Suarez, Dalglish oversaw a change in Liverpool's fortunes, following their worst start to a Barclays Premier League season in their history.


Despite the absence of captain Steven Gerrard, the form of Suarez and Maxi Rodriquez, who struck hat tricks against Birmingham City and Fulham during the back end of the campaign, saw the Reds close in on a Europa League spot and simultaneously justify the £57 million the club shelled out during the January transfer window.

Such was Liverpool's form during the twilight of the season that it urged Sir Alex Ferguson, whose Manchester United side were beaten 3-1 at Anfield by Dalglish's resurgent Reds, to tip them as title contenders for the new season.
