Liverpool are refusing to comment on reports that manager Kenny Dalglish has left the club.

Dalglish and assistant Steve Clarke are known to have flown to the United States for talks with the club's owner John Henry and chairman Tom Werner.

And numerous reports on Tuesday afternoon suggested Dalglish has left the club.

Liverpool suffered their 14th defeat of a hugely disappointing Premier League campaign on Sunday, a 1-0 reverse at Swansea.

Dalglish delivered their first silverware in six years - the Carling Cup - and guided the Reds to the FA Cup final.

But the Americans are desperate to challenge for the Premier League title and play in the Champions League.

In the last month the restructuring of the club has led to the departures of director of football Damien Comolli, head of sports science Peter Brukner and, on Friday, director of communications Ian Cotton.

And newspaper reports suggested the club's bosses are lining up Wigan manager Roberto Martinez to take over from Dalglish.

Defeat at Swansea meant Liverpool recorded their lowest total of top-flight league victories (14) and lowest points tally (52) since 1953-54.

They also scored the fewest league goals (47) for 20 years and an eighth-placed finish was their worst for 18 years.
