Newastle Utd manager Alan Pardew says there is no truth in claims that Liverpool have agreed a £15million deal to take left-back Jose Enrique to Anfield this summer.
Over the weekend, former Liverpool captain Phil Thompson told Norweigan TV that he believed the deal had been agreed with Liverpool.
However Pardew claims that no transfer deal has been reached and hopes to persuade the Spanish defender to stay at St Jameses Park.
“There’s definitely no deal between the clubs – 100 per cent,” Pardew told press.
“He’s under contract here until next summer. And we hope to open talks on a new deal as soon as possible.
“That’s where we are.”
