Liverpool are in talks with Olympiacos over the sale of winger Albert Riera.
The Spaniard played no part in Wednesday night's friendly draw with Grasshoppers as discussions over his future continue with the Greek outfit.
Roy Hodgson told Liverpoolfc.tv: "Albert Riera did not play as a precaution because negotiations are ongoing with Olympiacos."
Riera signed from Espanyol in August 2008 and has scored five goals in 56 appearances.
Wilson signs: First Interview
Danny Wilson today signed a three-year contract at Liverpool after passing a medical.
The 18-year-old arrives from Glasgow Rangers, where he won the SFA and Football Writers' Young Player of the Year last season.
Shortly after putting pen to paper, the Scot arrived at the LFC TV studios for his first interview.
He told us: "It's a great feeling to sign for Liverpool. Wherever you go everyone knows Liverpool FC and I am just very happy to be here.
"This is a massive challenge for me. This is one of the best leagues in the world and I will be playing for one of the biggest teams in the world.
"Coming here from Scotland, people may say I might not be ready for this, but that is a challenge I want to put on myself and that's the reason I came here.
"Everyone knows about the history of this football club with 18 league titles.
"It wasn't a difficult decision to come here as Liverpool are not a team who come in for you every day, so I can't wait to get started.
"There were other clubs interested in me who are in the Champions League, but once Liverpool came in for me there was only one team I wanted to go to."
