No early release for Naby Keita

RB Leipzig have said they have no intention of allowing Liverpool to complete the signing of midfielder Naby Keita before the summer.

Last August, the Reds agreed to pay £51m for the 22-year-old Guinea international, who will join in July.

Reports this week claimed he could join Liverpool in January for an extra £18m.

"The situation is the same as it was all season - there's no reason for us to let Naby Keita go early," Leipzig coach Ralph Hasenhuttl told the BBC.

The club added: "Nothing has changed and our position hasn't changed from before regarding this transfer."
