LIVERPOOL boss Jurgen Klopp has ruled out the possibility of signing RB Leipzig midfielder Naby Keita in January.

Liverpool agreed a club-record £48m deal to sign Keita back in August, with the 22-year-old due to sign for the Reds next summer.

There has been talk of the Guinea international moving to Anfield in January after RB Leipzig failed to qualify for the last 16 of the Champions League.

But Klopp insists there is no chance of Liverpool signing Keita before July 1.

The Reds manager said: "There is an agreement with the club that he will come in June or July to Liverpool.
