Keirrison To Liverpool Link Refuted By Palmeiras

The striker's club in Brazil have spoken out to cool speculation linking the youngster with a move to Merseyside.

Palmeiras have moved today to quell rumours linking their promising striker Keirrison with a summer move to Premier League title hopefuls Liverpool.

The player's agent had earlier this week told the Italian media that a clutch of top European clubs were in the hunt for the 20-year-old, who was top-scorer in the Campeonato Brasileiro last season when he was with Coritiba.

However, Palmeiras' director of football, Toninho Cecilio, insists that Keirrison will be remaining with them for the foreseeable future, especially as he has made only six appearances, though he has netted eight goals during that span.

"I don't want to spend a lot of time talking about this Liverpool issue as it is not true," Cecilio is reported by Sky Sports as saying.

"There is nothing official and we were not consulted about this.

"We have an excellent relationship with Liverpool, who signed goalkeeper Diego Cavalieri, and, if there was something, we will be the first to know about that.

"Instead, the intention of the Palmeiras board is to keep him here as long as possible here, before he continues his career in Europe."

Keirrison's agent had also suggested that Real Madrid and Bayern Munich were interested in his client, who, in a situation comparable to that of Manchester United's Carlos Tevez, is subject to third party 'ownership' by management company Traffic Sports Marketing.
