Alex Teixeira will not be joining Liverpool today, manager Jurgen Klopp has indicated.

The Liverpool manager said that while players could still leave Anfield, there wouldm't be any arrivals before the close of the January transfer window.

"I'm not sure what’s better for your job. So I can say maybe something happens or I can say the truth!" he said when asked about Liverpool's deadline day activity.

"No, you can finish work for the day. The outgoing side I’m not 100 per cent sure."

Liverpool have been working on trying to bring Teixeira into the club, making two bids for the Shakhtar Donetsk forward. However the clubs involved have been unable to come to an agreement.

The Ukrainian Premier League leaders told the 26-year-old’s suitors that they must meet his £53m release clause before a deal could be completed.

Liverpool chief executive Ian Ayre has been reluctant to meet Shakhtar’s valuation and a summer move is now more likely.
