Ben Davies will snub fresh interest from Celtic and Bournemouth because he is determined to make it at Liverpool.
Davies has yet to make an appearance for Liverpool since his surprise £1.6million switch from Preston in February 2021.
The centre-half’s playing prospects have been reduced by the signing of Ibrahima Konate from RB Leipzig and the return from injury of Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip.
But Davies remains committed to Anfield, even though Celtic and Bournemouth are offering him escape routes.
Both want to sign him on loan for next season and were keen on him before he moved to Liverpool.

Celtic had even agreed a pre-contract agreement with Davies to join them this summer on a Bosman before Liverpool made their shock move.
But Davies is keen to try again at Liverpool and Klopp has boosted him by telling him he wants him to stay.
He is not prepared to give up on making it with Liverpool in the Premier League after being given this unexpected chance.
Davies, 25, made the bench eight times for the Reds before a calf injury ended his season prematurely in April.

He is now fully fit and looking forward to proving himself when Liverpool begin pre-season training on Monday.
Barrow-born Davies came through the ranks at Preston and made 145 appearances for North End before joining Liverpool.
Liverpool signed him on transfer deadline day in February, along with Ozan Kabak, to help ease their defensive crisis and all of their senior centre-halves were injured.
The Reds paid an initial £500,000 for Davies with Dutch defender Sepp van der Berg heading in the opposite direction on loan.
