Transfer Tattle: Hyppia speaks

Having famously let Sami Hyppia pass on without signing after having him on trial under the watchful eye of the then dip-sh*t defensive coach Mark Lawrenson, the transfer window saw a second rejection by the player. Hyppia today gave his reasons for the snub, saying:

'There were a lot of rumours, and a few offers as well. Newcastle and Sunderland were both really interested in signing me. But Liverpool made it clear that they were not willing to sell me. That was it, although I might have considered another option.

The club decide these things, Liverpool didn't want to sell me. So I will spend the rest of the season in Liverpool, this is my 10th season and it is a great achievement. I will consider my options again in the summer when my current Liverpool contract expires.

It is too early to say what will happen then. It is not my style to worry about these things in advance. Now I will concentrate on helping my team to win trophies in a role the manager decides, whether it is on the bench or on the pitch.'
