Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers insists that his summer signings will not include any deals to bring in players on loan.
The former Swansea boss has used the loan market heavily since taking charge on Merseyside, as he tried to bolster his squad to compete at the top of the Premier League table.
While the majority of his squad were their permanently, the likes of Victor Moses and Aly Cissokho joined on a temporary basis.
Despite the pair helping the club finish second in the Premier League last season, Rodgers is now keen to limit loan moves and focus his attention on longer deals.
He told the Liverpool Echo: “I would hope we don’t have to go for loans this summer.
“But it’s always about the availability of players. If you are not satisfied with the squad and you feel you can improve it, then you have to look at every option.
“In these first couple of years I’ve been here, we have had to do that as we’ve had a thin squad.
“The players we wanted we couldn’t get but we’re hopeful that this summer will be different. We turn the page and it’s another chapter in terms of where we are going.
“Hopefully that will mean it will be more permanent players than loan players but I can never rule it out completely. There could be a situation where a player becomes available, we can get him and he can add to what we’re doing.”
