Ex-Barcelona keeper Victor Valdes has not rejected Liverpool trial - agent

Victor Valdes' agent has dismissed a report claiming the former Barcelona goalkeeper had rejected a move to Liverpool after being asked to undergo a trial.

Valdes is currently available on a free transfer after deciding to leave Barca in the summer and has been strongly linked with a move to Anfield.

However, he has been injured since March after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee and the Sunday People reported that Reds boss Brendan Rodgers had asked the keeper to undergo a four-day trial to prove his fitness.

The newspaper had claimed that, as a result, the move had collapsed, but agent Gines Carvajal told Sport: "Liverpool didn't ask us to train for four days. We haven't rejected it because it [the story] is false.

"Neither Brendan Rodgers nor Liverpool have ever made us this proposal, at any time."

Valdes, 32, opted to leave the Camp Nou as he wanted to experience football outside Spain.
