John W Henry has again dismissed Arsenal's attempt to sign Luis Suarez by insisting they are wasting their time.

Liverpool chairman Henry famously questioned the London club's approach last month after they submitted a bid of £40million plus one pound for the striker tweeting: "What are they smoking at Arsenal?"

And he has followed that up by telling a meeting of the Liverpool Supporters' Club in Oslo - ahead of the Reds' friendly game against Valarenga in the Norwegian capital - that Suarez is going nowhere.

The controversial Uruguayan again sent the football world into a speculation frenzy when he limped out of training on Tuesday... and out of the club's trip to Scandinavia.

He was sent to hospital for a scan on a foot injury when he couldn't continue after doing a warm-up and some light jogging with the rest of the team.

Suarez limped away from the pitch in some discomfort and after being looked over by medics they decided he required a more detailed examination to see if he'd broken any of the metatarsal bones.

Later though the 26-year-old drove himself away from the training ground sparking reports he had REFUSED to play in any more pre-season matches for Liverpool.

Manager Brendan Rodgers was quick to insist there is nothing sinister about the striker's absence on his arrival in Oslo:

"Luis picked up an injury in the open training session at Anfield yesterday and along with a number of other players (see below) we decided this game was too much of a risk for him.

"We have had a couple of bids from one club which have been nowhere near the valuation of what he is worth in this market so there is no change in that. It is the same with any of our players - we are very much trying to build and go forward and we want to keep our best players.

"We have no intention of selling one of the best players in the world to one of our rivals. Luis Suarez is very much a Liverpool player and there is no real value in discussing it unless someone comes close to the valuation."

And chairman Henry joined in to hammer down speculation of an imminent move to the Gunners as he reiterated his stance that the player will not be sold.

Henry also insisted he and business partner Tom Werner also have no intention of relinquishing the Anfield reins:

"I don't know why people ask us if we are selling the club or the best players because we are not. We like to buy stuff not to sell."
