FOOTBALL: Almost 'impossible' for Suarez to leave, says PFA chief

Professional Footballers' Association (PFA) chief Gordon Taylor says it will be practically impossible for Luis Suarez to leave Liverpool this month.



The 26-year-old Suarez has been told to train alone after seeking a move to Arsenal.



Taylor says with the transfer window expiring it makes it practically impossible for Suarez to move.



Arsenal have had two offers turned down by the Reds, the latest of which was a pound over 40 million pounds.



Uruguay international striker Suarez thought the latest offer would trigger a clause in his contract, allowing him to move.



With less than four weeks to go before the transfer window closes, Liverpool owner John W. Henry is adamant any offers from overseas clubs will also be rejected.



The American revealed that Suarez and his agent, Pere Guardiola, were informed any deal for him to leave Anfield would have to be completed early in the transfer window – giving manager Brendan Rodgers sufficient time to reinvest the fee.
