Dnipro winger Yevhen Konoplyanka has admitted his disappointment over a failed January deadline move to Liverpool.

The Ukrainian ace had been strongly linked with a £20m move to the Anfield club as the deadline approached.

But ultimately a delegation of Liverpool officials could not reach an agreement with Konoplyanka's Ukrainian employers and he's stayed at Dnipro.

He told reporters as reported by "[I'm] not at all upset! Well, I will not hide it…there is a little resentment.

"But life goes on. I need to treat this like a sleep. I woke up and carried on. I will search for the next dream. I hope that everything will turn out OK."

Earlier today Dnipro executive director Andriy Rusol had confirmed that he was 1000 per cent sure that Liverpool would return with another bid for the winger in the summer.

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers was linked with several January targets, but the deadline came and went without a single addition.

They resumed Premier League action at the weekend with a 1-1 draw against West Bromwich Albion at the Hawthorns.

Daniel Sturridge found the net for Liverpool, before ex-Everton forward Victor Anichibe equalised for the Baggies.
