Liverpool midfielder Jay Spearing will not be joining Burnley on loan when the window re-opens for clubs in the Football League.

The young midfielder, who gained a handful of first team opportunities at Liverpool under Kenny Dalglish last term, has fallen down the pecking order at Anfield after a handful of arrivals in the transfer window.

Whilst the Clarets are keen to strengthen in the position, Lancashire Telegraph reporter Suzanne Geldard understands the 22-year-old Liverpool starlet is not on the club's radar.

A Merseysider born-and-bred, the former Leicester City loanee graduated through the Reds' academy to make his senior debut back in 2008.

After struggling to make a first team impression under Roy Hodgson last term, the player later flourished and finished the campaign a regular for Liverpool.


Speculation was rife this summer that the player would leave on loan, with Wolves a probable destination, but the player now looks set to stay at Liverpool and fight for a first team place.

Competition will come from many quarters though, with Charlie Adam, Lucas Leiva and Steven Gerrard also competing for two spots at Liverpool.
