Report: Liverpool owner John W Henry set to conduct transfer policy review

BY foxsports • December 16, 2014

Liverpool's owners are reportedly set to conduct a review of a disastrous transfer policy that saw them spend almost £120m on eight under-performing players in the summer.

None of the eight players brought in by the club's transfer committee have been unqualified successes, with £20m players Lazar Markovic and Dejan Lovren taking the brunt of criticism from fans and pundits.

New striker signings Rickie Lambert and Mario Balotelli have contributed a grand total of one Premier League goal so far this season while Adam Lallana is the only new signing to have been credited with an assist.

'Now American supremo John W Henry and his aides plan to look into how the £75million Luis Suarez money was wasted despite putting a special committee in place,' says The Sun.

The committee consists of chief executive Ian Ayre, head of analysis Michael Edwards, recruitment chief Dave Fallows and manager Brendan Rodgers.

It is reported that Rodgers wanted Swansea striker Wilfried Bony but the committee would not pay £19m for a player who is now worth £25m. Moves for his Swans team-mates Michel Vorm and Ben Davies were also suggested but then vetoed.
