Liverpool fans here in the Transfer Tavern won’t have much to celebrate this evening in the way of an incoming signing, although news has emerged of one player who will not be leaving the club.
One Liverpool supporting punter is enjoying a pint of the landlord’s best bitter and keeping track on the latest transfer news when he spots an article in the Liverpool Echo, which claims defender Jose Enrique will be staying with the Reds having failed to agree terms with Newcastle United.
The left-back was set for a switch back to his former club but failed to agree personal terms with the Magpies and he will now see out the remainder of his contract which expires in the summer.
One Magpies fan is putting a couple of tracks on the jukebox and is pleased Enrique will not be arriving at St. James’ Park, with the supporter doubtful as to whether Enrique can maintain consistent enough form to play regular Premier League football.
Newcastle fans… Agree with the supporter in the Tavern? Or, could he still do a job for you?
