Manchester City reject Liverpool loan offer for Richards

Published Add your comment

Manchester City have rejected a Liverpool loan bid for defender Micah Richards, according to the Daily Mail.

The 25-year-old was reportedly the subject of an enquiry by the Merseyside club, as Brendan Rodgers continues his search for a new right-back.

With Glen Johnson struggling for fitness, the Reds boss was hoping to strengthen his full-back options at Anfield with the addition of Richards.

However, Manuel Pellegrini has quashed the possibility of a deadline day exit from the Etihad Stadium, after rebuffing Liverpool's approach for the versatile stopper.

Richards has seen his first-team opportunities limited at Manchester City this season, due to the fine form of Argentine star Pablo Zabaleta.

It's understood that Richards is open to the possibility of moving in order to gain more regular football, but a switch to Liverpool looks unlikely to happen, after Rodgers denied that a deal is in the offing at Friday's pre-match press conference.
