Leipzig rule out early transfer for Naby Keita to Liverpool

Leipzig rule out early transfer for Naby Keita to Liverpool

Much to Liverpool fans' disappointment, it would seem that The Reds will not be able to fast-track their move for Anfield-bound Naby Keita to January, with RB Leipzig confirming on their Twitter page that the Guinea worldwide will be staying at the club until the end of the season, as previously agreed.

Indeed, there had been whispers that Saturday's clash with Schalke - a match that Keita actually scored in - would be his last before making his move to the Premier League.

Leipzig ruled out a winter transfer for Naby Keita on Sunday, saying the Guinea midfielder will stay with the side to the end of the season.

Naby Keita is reportedly on the verge of being unveiled as a Liverpool player, even though he is not due to sign until the summer. It would only have been possible to reach a mutual agreement, if an exorbitant additional fee was involved.

"We wish to put the speculation about a January move to Livepool to bed".

However, the Guinea global had hoped he could move to Anfield six months earlier with reports of Liverpool offering the Bundesliga side another £13million to release him from the original agreement.

But with the recent sale of Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona, there have been calls for the midfielder to arrive early at Anfield.

But Leipzig insist Keita will not leave the Bundesliga club until the end of June - the previously agreed date for his transfer.

Liverpool play Manchester City in a few hours and Jurgen Klopp will be focusing on the huge clash before he turns his attention back to how he intends to proceed this season.
