New Liverpool boss eyeing British talent

Hodgson will be trying to take Liverpool back into the Champions League next season.

He said: “We would be foolish not to be aware of the importance of homegrown players with the way Uefa and Premier League rules are going.

“Otherwise we’re going to struggle to get our squad numbers together.

“I think the club have been trying to do that already with younger players like Jonjo Shelvey and Raheem Sterling but it takes time for them to come through so we might have to go into the transfer market.”
