BENITEZ SET FOR BABEL TALKS
Posted 11/09/09 15:08
Liverpool manager Rafa Benitez is to hold talks with Ryan Babel, but maintains he will not allow the winger to leave on loan.
Babel is disappointed at a lack of first-team opportunities this season and has claimed summer guarantees from his club boss have not been kept.
A loan return to Ajax was hinted as a possibility, and it remains an option for the future, as the Holland ace wants to reinforce his place for the World Cup.
But Benitez, who has previously challenged Babel to battle for a role, will not allow a player he signed for £11.5million in 2007 leave on a temporary basis.
He said: "I will talk to Ryan. But I do not want him going on loan, he needs to work and fight for his place here."

"Liverpool co-owner George Gillett has claimed that the Premier League club has "never been stronger" from an economic perspective, while underlining that he has a long-term view of his association with the Reds."
