Liverpool product staying with Reds

Published Add your comment

Liverpool's Jay Spearing has said that he is focused on fighting for position at Anfield, after rubbishing rumours that he could make a move to Wolverhampton Wanderers.

"The first I heard about the Wolves stuff was in the papers and it's not something that's been discussed."

The 22-year-old midfielder was scouted by the Merseysiders as a boy and is determined to stay with Liverpool, despite a short loan to Leicester in 2010 and an influx of new signings made by manager Kenny Dalglish.

"I'm just getting on with giving everything for this club. I've got more competition to fight against now but that doesn't bother me.

"Hopefully, I can now kick on even with the signings."

Spearing only recently extended his contract in May before rumours started speculating over his future. The Liverpool middle man had started to get more action with the Reds towards the end of last season, and Dalglish seemed more than happy to hold on to the youngster.


He said at the time: "It's just reward for the performances he's put in and he thoroughly deserves what he's got," adding that "wee Jay" was "there on merit".

But since then, Liverpool's recent haul of signings have put the club under pressure to slim down the squad to make room for a much needed left back.

Spearing will now have to fight for position with newcomers Charlie Adam and Jordan Henderson, while Steven Gerrard recovers from a long running groin injury.
