David Moyes has rejected the chance to sign Mamadou Sakho on loan according to the Daily Mail.

It was revealed yesterday that Mamadou Sakho could be sent out on loan to keep fit as he is unlikely to see much game time at Liverpool at this point in time.

Liverpool’s French centre-back has suffered a turbulent 2016 after he missed both the Europa League final and Euro 2016 campaign due to a positive random drugs test last season. Despite the charges being cleared, Sakho’s career hasn’t settled down yet.

Klopp sent Sakho home from the club’s pre-season tour of the US due to inappropriate behaviour and has since been unable to break into his manager’s plans. Subsequently, it was revealed yesterday that Klopp is open to loaning Sakho out with it thought that Liverpool have enough centre-halves to deal with the domestic football that the Reds face this season.

As it turns out David Moyes has turned down the opportunity to sign Sakho as he favours Papy Djilobodji on the left side of defence.

Just like you, I am a hugely passionate Liverpool supporter. I started Rousing the Kop in January 2015 and since then it has grown tremendously and has even been nominated as 'Best New Football Blog' in the Football Blogging Awards.

  1. Why on earth would we want to send him out on loan???….its not as though we are rock solid in defence and have half a dozen defenders to choose from.
    Something else that troubles me is a report over the weekend that quoted Allen as saying that he learnt about his move via a third party, now I see another report saying Sakho is also in the dark about whats going one…..assuming that all these reports are correct, I would like to know what the hell is going on at Liverpool, is this the “new Liverpool way” ….cut throat, ruthless and heartless, these players are also human why treat them like cattle?….again, if its true I think its bloody disgusting, shame on the lot of you.
