Dalglish admits active January transfer 'option'

Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish admits he expects a quiet January transfer window at Anfield, despite speculation to the contrary.

The Reds chief was happy to admit that he has funds at his disposal and an 'option' to be active in the window, but that the club aren't actively pursuing any players at the current time.

"We're not really chasing after anybody that we want to bring in in January. We've been happy with what they [the players] have done since August," 'King Kenny' told reporters ahead of the clash against Stoke.

"We've got an option to be active if we want to be active, but we said at the outset that we'd be quiet."

A plethora of players have been linked with a move to Anfield, with Luuk de Jong, Wilfried Zaha and Darren Bent all claimed to be on the Merseyside radar.

And Dalglish's comments are unlikely to end talk of Liverpool activity in the window, given that there are still 18 days left in the month and the current front-line situation on Merseyside.

Luis Suarez is in the middle of an eight-match FA ban, whilst the form of £35 million signing Andy Carroll remains of concern to Liverpool fans, if not the manager in public.

It remains to be seen if the Scot will stay true to his word, should players become available that are of interest to the Liverpool hierarchy.
