Despite a late round of rumours linking him with a £16M move to Newcastle United yesterday, it appears increasingly likely that Lazar Markovic will still be a Liverpool player when the transfer window closes tonight at 11PM.

There have also been tenuous links with Sporting Lisbon, though it has been suggested in recent weeks that the 22-year-old winger is intent on making a name for himself in a major European league and does not fancy returning to Portugal.

Now, according to The Express, that resistance to departing Liverpool for Portugal and the Newcastle move falling through mean that he will be at Anfield, where he is stuck on the fringes of the first team, at least until January.

There’s still time before the transfer window closes, so it’s possible a loan could be arranged for the young winger in to ensure he gets minutes to keep his value up, but right now a long spell with Liverpool’s reserves appears to be on the cards.
