Liverpool big-money defender chase 'without foundation'

Published Add your comment

Bolton Wanderers manager Owen Coyle has branded claims Liverpool have bid for Gary Cahill 'rubbish'.

Press speculation Thursday morning claims Kenny Dalglish was on the verge of landing the England international in a big-money move, but Coyle has branded the reports irresponsible.

"This story is without a shred of foundation," said Coyle in reference to a reportedly imminent Liverpool deal.

"It is irresponsible. To just reel words off is in poor taste. Nothing surprises you in football but people should have more knowledge of the background for anything before they write it.

"It doesn't faze me. I am not raging about it. I am just making a point."

The Trotters continue to hold onto their prized defensive asset despite additional interest from Arsenal and Spurs, with the Reebok Stadium outfit claiming a formal offer is yet to be made for the player, who would command a 'big money' fee in the region of £20 million.


Liverpool, meanwhile, are thought to be in the market for a defender, although have been more heavily linked with a left back during the transfer window.

Jose Enrique is thought to be favourite to make an Anfield move, with a reported £8 million fee placed on the Liverpool target's head.

Should Enrique move to Merseyside, he would join additional summer signings Jordan Henderson, Charlie Adam, Stewart Downing and Alexandre Doni at Liverpool.
