Agger exit on the cards

ROY Hodgson's insistence that Daniel Agger is not for sale has been brought into question after Dieter Hoeness, the sporting director of Wolfsburg, claimed to have rejected the chance to sign the defender from Liverpool.

The revelation from Hoeness caused Per Steffensen, Agger's agent, to express his surprise and bewilderment, particularly because Wolfsburg believe that they are not the only club who have been offered a deal for the Denmark player.

Agger's Liverpool future has been shrouded in doubt for several months with the 26-year-old, who moved to Anfield from Brondby in January 2006, having fallen out of the first-team picture because of a succession of injury problems.

"We have been offered the chance to buy Daniel Agger, but we have rejected the offer," Hoeness said. "It is my impression that he is being offered to clubs around Europe at the moment."
