Liverpool FC and Brendan Rodgers have shelved plans to bring back Divock Origi prematurely from loan at Lille
Rodgers has confirmed that discussions over the player's immediate future are taking place between the two clubs.
Liverpool are far from where they would ideally want to be- eighth in the league and knocked out of the Champions League. Gerrard's departure news has only added to the gloom.

Liverpool Football Club are set to bring back on-loan striker Divock Origi this month despite denying last month that they will let him complete the one-year loan spell at Lille. In December, reports had emerged that Liverpool could recall Origi after having a disastrous league campaign where their strikers have failed to produce the goals so far.

Though it is not certain how long this injury will keep him out but it is unlikely he is going to make his comeback anytime soon. Liverpool have struggled immensely in front of goal this season with the three present strikers combining to score only two goals so far. Summer signing Mario Balotelli has looked isolated up front while Rickie Lambert and Fabio Borini have not fared any better. With the lack of goals from the strikers and another setback […]

Divock Origi wants a move to Anfield in January but accepts an early arrival in the Premier League can take place only with the consent of French club Lille. The 19-year-old Belgium striker is due to complete his move to Liverpool next summer but with the Reds struggling for goals so far this season, Origi is open to making a move earlier than expected if his present club allows him to do so. “Maybe January, who knows?” Origi said. “It is not me who makes the decisions but if the club choose to let me go in January I would go.
