Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez has insisted that he wants to keep hold of Andrea Dossena.
The Italian arrived at Anfield from Udinese over the summer for an undisclosed fee believed to be in the region of £7million.
He was given the opportunity to establish himself at left-back but failed to impress and lost his place to Fabio Aurelio.
Aurelio suffered an injury at the end of November but Benitez turned to Argentine youngster Emiliano Insua rather than Dossena.
Dossena has been linked with a January move away from Liverpool but Benitez has ruled out a departure.
He does not want to lose any of his players as the Reds continue to mount a challenge for the Premier League title.
"I am not considering selling Dossena," Benitez said in the Daily Star.
"I think it is important to keep the squad together."
