'I can't imagine playing for other clubs in England' – Agger affirms commitment to Liverpool

Daniel Agger has claimed he would like the opportunity to stay at Liverpool, but admits the club may have no choice but to sell him if the offer is too good to refuse.

The 27-year-old, who arrived from Brondby back in 2006 for £6 million, has cemented his position as a key member of the Reds’ squad in recent seasons despite lingering injury problems.

But boss Brendan Rodgers has admitted that all his players have a price, and with Manchester City reportedly having had two bids rejected, the defender concedes that he may not have any say in where his future lies.

When asked about possible interest from other clubs, Agger told Ekstra Bladet: “No, I haven’t heard anything. That is how the club wants to do it. I would prefer to stay.”

“I can’t imagine playing for other clubs in England. But, you never know if the club prefers to sell me.”

The heavily-tattooed defender recently had ‘YNWA’ [standing for ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’] imprinted on his knuckles, fuelling speculation that he could stay at Anfield for the remainder of his career.

However, Agger dismissed suggestions that the tattoo had anything to do with his current situation at the club.

He added: “It is a gesture towards the Kop, towards Liverpool and towards the people around the club.”
