Hamburg star's agent rules out Liverpool move
Marcell Jansen's agent says the Germany international will not be the solution to Liverpool's problems at left-back as he remains committed to Hamburg.
Jansen, who scored in Germany's 3-2 win over Uruguay in the third-place play-off at the World Cup, is reported to be a possible target for new Reds manager Roy Hodgson.
Liverpool are in desperate need of a new left-back having released Fabio Aurelio and in the process of selling Emiliano Insua to Fiorentina. But Jansen, 24, is not a contender to move to Anfield, according to his representative Gerd vom Bruch.
"The interest in him is a credit to Marcell," he told Hamburger Morgenpost. "But he is under contract with Hamburger SV and will be respecting this."
Hamburg director of sport Bastian Reinhardt insists the player will not be permitted to leave the club.
"We have not heard anything either from Liverpool or from Marcell's agent,'' Reinhardt said. "We have absolutely no consideration to sell him.''
Liverpool have been linked with a number of potential targets, including Fulham's Paul Konchesky and PSV left-back Carlos Salcido. But it is Wigan's Maynor Figueroa who remains the most likely signing with an agent of the player telling the Daily Mirror: "Just a few details remain before we confirm the signing."
