EPL transfer news: Liverpool owner hopes Divock Origi sticks around

Liverpool owner John W. Henry says he hopes striker Divock Origi remains at the club for the 2019/20 season.

The Belgian striker, who scored some vital goals for the Reds last term, has been linked with a move away from Anfield to have more regular game time.

Origi scored some vital goals for the Reds in the 2018/19 season.

However, Henry says: "It's not up to me but I would guess we will see more of Divock (Origi) next year.

“I think he brings something special, he comes with power and speed and brings in scoring. I feel really good about next year."

While the title race may have ended in disappointment, Henry said his team had every reason to be proud of their season.

"Our guys gave it their all from the first day of the season to the last," he told PA Sport. "It's a long season, they played up to their capabilities and just gave so much effort.

"It didn't matter who the opponent was, they out-ran every opponent and I felt they deserved to walk away with a trophy. We walked away with the biggest one [UEFA Champions League] so I'm very happy."
