Liverpool star rules out Wigan switch
The teenage Spaniard had been linked with a six-month move to the DW Stadium, where he could gain vital experience under fellow countryman Roberto Martinez.
With the Reds having secured Daniel Sturridge and Philippe Coutinho’s signatures this month, competition for first-team places at Anfield is fierce.
Suso has featured regularly during the opening months of the season, but will now face a battle with fellow youngster Raheem Sterling to force himself into manager Brendan Rodgers’ first-team plans.
However, the 19-year-old is happy to fight for his spot on Merseyside, and ruled out a move to Wigan:
“I’m making clear that I’m not going on loan to Wigan. I’m really happy in Liverpool. ” he is quoted by Sky Sports.
The attacking midfielder is widely regarded as one of the best emerging talents at Liverpool and has featured on several occasions in the Premier League and Europa League this term.
Whilst his technical abilities appear to be admirable, his slender frame has seen the physical nature of English football hinder some of his performances.
Although he is a product of the Reds’ youth set-up, he began his footballing career with hometown club Cadiz.
