Brendan Rodgers has ruled out the possibility of any members of his first team squad leaving Liverpool during the January transfer window.

The Reds' are expected to add to their numbers next month in order to strengthen their challenge for the Premier League but a number of players have been linked with moves away from Anfield amid concerns over first team football opportunities.

Daniel Agger was the subject of a loan enquiry from Napoli last week with Rafa Benitez keen to be reunited with the Dane during the second half of the season. The future of Iago Aspas has also been uncertain after he struggled to make an impact following his summer arrival, with Swansea reportedly interested in taking the Spaniard on loan in the New Year.

In response, Rodgers told the club's official website: [In terms of] players going out, we don't have to move anyone out. If players aren't in the team, then they need to fight to get back in the team. That's the beauty of the squad.

"You saw the spirit in our team as well at the weekend. If you looked at our bench when we were scoring the goals and when we were winning, it was a happy bench.

"I've always said to the players that aren't playing that it's their responsibility to support the players that are playing. If you're out of the team, of course it's difficult and I always acknowledge and recognise that by supporting them."

Having secured perhaps the two best pieces of business of the window last January in bringing Philippe Coutinho and Daniel Sturridge to the club, Rodgers has insisted they will not be rushed into signing players for the sake of it in the New Year.

The former Swansea boss could instead look once again to the club's youth ranks to strengthen his squad in the absence of key characters such as Steven Gerrard, Jose Enrique and Sturridge.

"The squad we have at the moment is still relatively small, we have got a few players out," Rodgers said.

"But I'll always look from within, like I have done whenever we have had injuries, when young Jon Flanagan came into the team or when Raheem Sterling came into the team.

"Of course, we would want to reinforce the group, but it has to be players that are clearly better than what we have that can come in and help the group."
