Liverpool striker Rickie Lambert is going nowhere, according to the Liverpool Echo.

The England international, who signed for his boyhood club from Southampton in the summer, was linked with a move to Crystal Palace but the Anfield club are reportedly insisting that the striker is staying put.

Lambert has only started five Premier League games for the Reds all season despite main man and fellow England international Daniel Sturridge missing large parts of the season through injury.

Shock signing

Lambert was a bit of a shock signing for Liverpool in the summer when he joined from Southampton for £8 million.

At 32-years of age Lambert is unlikely to improve much and after making little impact at Anfield has been linked with moving away to play to gain more game time in his twilight years.

Liverpool to keep Lambert

Liverpool, however, clearly believe that Lambert can still play a role in the club's future.

Whether Lambert does make a bigger impact on the first team and the starting 11 should he stay at Anfield will surely be the deciding factor in whether Lambert stays in the summer.

With Sturridge getting closer by the day to a long-awaited reds return, Lambert's opportunities are unlikely to improve in the second half of the season.
