Ayre: Reds won't overpay

MANAGING DIRECTOR Ian Ayre insists Liverpool will not pay over the odds on inflated transfer fees but claims they can compete when the right player is available.

"We haven't been held back from completing a deal, the player (Salah) has decided he doesn't want to come to Liverpool," said Ayre as he announced a deal with airline Garuda Indonesia as their first training kit sponsor.

"We will always compete and know the value of a player and how far we are prepared to go.

"We won't overpay but when the right player is available and wants to be at Liverpool they will."
