Liverpool have been dealt a blow in their January pursuit of Martin Montoya after the Spanish defender revealed that he wants to stay at Barcelona, reports talkSPORT.

The 22-year-old right-back has been heavily linked with a move away from Camp Nou in the New Year, with Inter Milan also credited with an interest in the player's signature.

Reds boss Brendan Rodgers is believed to be an admirer of Montoya - who will be out of contract at Barcelona at the end of the season - but his hopes of luring him to Anfield have suffered a setback following his latest comments.

"I've been with the club for 14 years and I still have many months on my contract," he is quoted by Marca. "And I expect much more than that."

Montoya continues to find himself behind Dani Alves in the first-team pecking order, but is willing to snub the advances of Liverpool and Inter, in favour of staying and fighting for his place in La Liga, as long as he is seen as a part of Gerardo Martino's long-term future.
