Iago Aspas
Aspas has started just five times in the Premier League this season

Liverpool striker Iago Aspas will stay at the club according to his agent despite demanding a more regular involvement in the first team.

Since arriving from Celta Vigo in the summer of 2013 Aspas has played a peripheral role this term, playing just 12 minutes since New Year's Day with Daniel Sturridge and Luis Suarez preferred in attack.

Though Liverpool look likely to qualify for next season's Champions League, which would improve Aspas' opportunities in other competitions, the Spaniard is keen on a move away from Anfield.

However his agent Jose Rodriguez Baster said: "There is no possibility of a return to Spain for Iago, or for a move elsewhere.

"Iago has a four-year contract with Liverpool and he is happy to be at the Reds, aside from the fact that he would certainly like to play more.

"But [Brendan] Rodgers is happy with him and they are not thinking about a transfer."

Aspas started Liverpool's first three games of the season but has begun just two further games in English football's top flight with manager Brendan Rodgers opting to partner Sturridge and Suarez in attack, while Raheem Sterling has also been preferred ahead of the 26-year-old.

Should Liverpool maintain their two-point lead over Chelsea and win the Premier League title, the club would likely be looking for a higher calibre of player in the upcoming summer transfer window in order to sustain their success while also balancing commitments in the Champions League.

With the possibility of new faces arriving, Aspas says he is unwilling to remain on Merseyside should he continue to be marginalised.

"I will talk to the club at the end of the season, and if the situation remains like this, I think that for both the club and for me the best outcome is an exit," he told IBTimes UK.

"Because they also paid €9m for me. Everything depends on what the club wants at the end of the season. Now we are just focused on the Premier League and we cannot be thinking about individual aspects."
