Rumours have been abound that Liverpool were looking to bring in Bent this winter, to assist their plight int eh final third, which has seen them fail to hit the net in their last two Premier League outings.

A week after Kenny Dalglish admitted he was unwilling to sell Carroll, Liverpool have turned down an offer to swap the goal-shy forward.
