Liverpool may sell Mamadou Sakho in January after Jurgen Klopp revealed the defender is not in his first-team squad.

Asked about his plans for the upcoming transfer window, Klopp insisted he had no intention of selling England striker Daniel Sturridge or any other first-team player - but then implied that does not apply to outcast Sakho.

"There is absolutely no thought or idea to sell any player from the first team squad," Klopp said. "I don't think it would make sense."

Klopp said in several national newspapers that former Paris St Germain captain Sakho, 26, is not in that category.

"Now you know, I said it: he is not in these plans for the first team," Klopp said. "The first-team squad is here [at the training ground]."

Sakho has been training with the club's under-23 squad since September, when he used social media to dispute Klopp's comments about his fitness.
