Aston Villa have expressed an interest in Liverpool striker Rickie Lambert, according to The Times.

The England forward has struggled for game time since moving to Anfield in the summer, but is unlikely to leave his boyhood club in this window.

Liverpool boss rules out any deadline day signings

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has ruled out making a surprise signing on transfer deadline day.

"We will be very quiet," said Rodgers when asked at his press conference whether there will be any transfer activity, "We are looking to keep all the players here."

Liverpool had been linked with a move for Burnley striker Danny Ings, but any potential deal looks like it will happen in the summer when the striker's contract runs out.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers will wait until Friday before deciding whether to give Daniel Sturridge his comeback in Saturday's Barclays Premier League game at West Ham.

"He has looked outstanding in training, but we will give him another day (before deciding whether to play him)," the Reds boss told a press conference.

"I will have a chat with him (on Friday) and overview the week, how everything has gone, but in my brief conversation with him (on Thursday) I can tell he is happy and feeling very strong in his own body.

"At this moment, he looks in top-class condition."

Sturridge has been out since suffering a thigh injury on international duty last September.
