Henry insists Liverpool did all they could to sign forward

John Henry, the owner of Liverpool, has published an open letter to the club's fans insisting they did all they could to sign a striker.

Liverpool missed out on Clint Dempsey as they failed to bring in another attacker before the transfer deadline finished.

"I am as disappointed as anyone connected with Liverpool Football Club that we were unable to add further to our strike force in this summer transfer window, but that was not through any lack of desire or effort on the part of all of those involved.

"They pushed hard in the final days of the transfer window on a number of forward targets and it is unfortunate that on this occasion we were unable to conclude acceptable deals to bring those targets in."
