Hodgson: 'I may send Aquilani out on loan'

Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson has confirmed that he is considering the possibility of sending Alberto Aquilani out on loan in an effort to help him regain first-team football.

The Italian midfielder has endured an injury-stricken campaign last year after joining the Merseyside club last summer and has not enjoyed a regular run in the team.

Speaking after Liverpool's 1-0 win against Trabzonspor in the Europa League Hodgson confirmed: "At the moment we are considering loaning him to an Italian club.

"I didn't want to use him tonight in case the loan goes through because for Aquilani it's very important this year that he plays regular football, every week as the number one man on the team sheet.

"I can't promise him that here so if a loan move to Italy could help him in that respect it might be good for all parties. It would certainly be what he needs, it would certainly protect the value of the player and when he does return to Liverpool no doubt we will see the Aquilani that we signed before he came here injured last year."


The former Roma man has previously been linked with a move to Napoli this summer, something his agent Franco Zavaglia denied.

CAN WE PRETEND THAT AIRPLANES IN THE NIGHT SKY ARE LIKE SHOOTING STARS???????
I COULD REALLY USE A WISH RIGHT NOW, WISH RIGHT NOW....................

Peter Kenyon called in as unlikely dealmaker for Liverpool takeover

• Former Chelsea chief executive brought in by Kenny Huang
• Outspoken Marc Ganis stood down by consortium

Peter Kenyon has been engaged by Kenny Huang to lead negotiations for the Chinese consortium in its bid to take over Liverpool. The news emerged as Marc Ganis, the Chicago-based sports executive, was stood down by the Chinese consortium.

Digger understands Ganis has not been involved with Huang since Tuesday this week after what appears to have been a clash of cultures.

Bloomberg reported Kenyon has been involved in talks for several months. He is acting as a consultant on behalf of Huang, having won the mandate through his employer, Creative Artists Agency, whom he joined upon leaving his post as Chelsea's chief executive. Kenyon, who is also a former chief executive of Manchester United, will not take up any boardroom position at Liverpool in the event of success in Huang's bid.

Meanwhile Ganis, who had assisted Huang's QSL sports group in previous negotiations with US sports franchises and sponsors, has lost his own mandate. It was Ganis who detailed in an interview with the US wire agency the Associated Press on 6 August the merits of Huang's bid.

That interview also carried a warning that rather complicated the negotiations with Liverpool's board, which still includes as directors the American co-owners, Tom Hicks and George Gillett. Ganis said: "What is not one of our goals is the enrichment of the existing owners."

Ganis was not available to respond to Digger's request last night to explain his departure from the Huang consortium.

It is impossible to know for sure why he is no longer part of the bid. But at a time when Hicks and Gillett's principal motivation is to recover some cash value for their equity, the best bet is he has paid for those comments.

i am legitimately so ambivalent about gallas though, i don't even care that he's gone to spurs. and not in a 'i wish we still had him so i'm going to act all nonchalant' ambivalence - like when i read it i just thought 'meh. okay.' i dunno. what do you think about it, billy? was the siren song of harry redknapp so irresistable?

nodding my head like yeah


oh. okay. see you at the lane then i guess.
