Benítez rules out move for David Silva

Liverpool manager Rafael Benítez has ruled out a move for Valencia winger David Silva. The Spanish international has been linked with a summer move to Anfield by a number of newspapers.

"We will not be signing him," Benítez said earlier today. "We are working hard, talking with the scouting department, and looking at names and options for next season. It's still too soon."

Liverpool are finishing the league campaign strongly after looking to have let their title chances slip away after Christmas, but Benítez has asked the club's supporters to remain focused: "Football can change very quickly and that is why we say it is important to just take one game at a time. Everything can change each week and maybe next week we can be at the top again."
