Liverpool won't terminate Arthur loan deal

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has insisted that the club won't terminate the loan contract of Arthur in January.

The Brazilian joined the Reds from Juventus on loan last summer with an option to buy for around £30 million.

He has since played just 13 minutes of senior football and is currently out for the long-term after a thigh operation.

This has led to suggestions that Arthur's deal could be terminated soon, but Klopp has dismissed such a prospect.

He said: "No [we will not cut his loan deal in January]. It's a long-term injury."

"When he's back then we will think about it again but in the moment it's too far away.

"I have no idea how long it will be but it will be long. It's a serious injury."

Liverpool have been poor in the Premier League this term and they are already 12 points behind current leaders Arsenal.

They are scheduled to host Leeds United at home tomorrow night. The game is a must-win to keep their top-four hopes alive.
