Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish says he has not heard anything from Lille about the possibility of turning Joe Cole's switch into a permanent arrangement reports

The 30-year-old midfielder joined the reigning French champions on a season-long loan deal in August, and has since rediscovered his best form in Ligue 1.

Having fallen down the Anfield pecking order, Cole has made it clear he is keen to leave Liverpool for good, and earlier this week Lille president Michel Seydoux indicated the club may look to negotiate a transfer for the Reds reject.

However, Dalglish insists he is unaware of any talks between the two clubs, before revealing how delighted he is to see the Liverpool loanee doing so well in France.

"He has never spoken to me," he confirmed. "I don't know anything about it.

"It is great for Joe he is doing so well but beyond that I don't know of anything that has happened."

Cole played a starring role in Lille's 2-0 victory over CSKA Moscow in the UEFA Champions League this week, setting up both of his side's goals.

"I know they won 2-0 and the lad hit the post and is playing well," Dalglish added. "But he's been playing well most of the time."
