Daniel Sturridge's future is still in doubt as Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp avoided a question about a potential summer exit for the striker, reports ​the Mirror.

Klopp has refused to give any assurances on the England international's future. Any transfer talk seems to be put to one side for Klopp, as he also said that any rumours regarding Mamadou Sakho will be addressed at the end of the season.

Sturridge has only scored eight goals in another season torn apart by injuries, and has been linked with a move away from Anfield in order for a fresh start elsewhere.

Klopp said that: "It was not an easy season so far but there are still six games to go and he is back. I’m happy about this. But I don’t think a second with the actual squad about the next season. We plan different things, like transfers, as you can imagine. But who will leave we have never thought about it."


Sakho's loan spell at Crystal Palace has been immensely successful so far. In his six appearances, the Eagles have won five, and kept four clean sheets to ease their relegation worries and put them six points clear of the relegation places.

Sam Allardyce's side have suggested that there is a clause in the arrangement with the Reds that allows them to sign Sakho, but Klopp said that: "There is no clause."


Klopp also offered updates on the fitness of skipper Jordan Henderson and Adam Lallana. The pair are not ready to return to first team action yet. Lallana picked up a hamstring problem on international duty whilst Henderson is still injured due to a long standing foot issue.

Klopp said: "It was clear from the beginning that it was not a fixed term. We are still waiting. He feels nothing but we have to make steps so that he can be part of team training. It could be next week in training or the week after. I’m pretty sure he could have a few games" about Henderson and: "Adam will be back in training after Crystal Palace" about Lallana.
