Liverpool have attempted to quash speculation about star player Luis Suarez's future at Anfield by insisting that the player will not be sold.

A Liverpool spokesperson said: "Luis Suarez is not for sale. Neither Luis or his representatives have communicated these feelings directly to Liverpool.

"The club remains supportive of Luis and expect him to honour his contract. The club will not be making any further comment at this stage."

Suarez reportedly told media in his native Uruguay today that he wanted to leave the club because he doesn't "feel comfortable here anymore".
