Liverpool ‘turn down two bids for Kostas Tsimikas’

Liverpool have reportedly rejected bids from Olympiacos and Panathinaikos for left-back Kostas Tsimikas.

The Greece international has made just four appearances in all competitions, none of those in the Premier League, since joining the Reds from Olympiacos for £11m last year.

Due to his lack of playing time at Anfield, TEAMtalk reports that Panathinaikos and former side Olympiacos have attempted to bring the defender back to Greece.

However, it is claimed that Liverpool rebuffed the approaches as they feel that Tsimikas still has a part to play at Anfield over the longer term.

Liverpool have so far been quiet in the January transfer window, with no first-team players arriving or departing this month.
