Liverpool fail to meet asking price for Kuyt

July 20, 2006

Dirk Kuyt's agent has questioned Liverpool's hopes of landing the striker, insisting he will not move to Anfield unless the club meet Feyenoord's valuation.

The 25-year-old has been strongly linked with a move to Anfield as the Reds look to increase their goalscoring options ahead of the forthcoming season.

Newcastle are also reportedly interested but the player's agent Rob Jansen believes he will remain at Feyenoord as both clubs seem unlikely to pay the Eredivisie side's £13.7million price.

'Dirk will not be signing for Liverpool any time soon,' Jansen told AD Sportwereld.

'He is also not negotiating with any other English club for that matter.

'Both clubs do not want to pay what Feyenoord wants.

'If foreign clubs don't have the money to buy Kuyt then he will stay with Feyenoord, it's that simple.'
