LIVERPOOL reject Ozan Kabak is after a stunning £80,000-a-week contract to come back to the Premier League.

But his pay demands and the fee German club Schalke are asking for are making Kabak unattractive to many potential suitors.
Kabak, 21, initially went straight into Jurgen Klopp’s injury-ravaged defence after being borrowed in February.
But Liverpool have ducked out of a permanent £18million deal with Schalke
It’s thought Klopp believes the former Stuttgart ace would not regain a regular place next season.

The former Bolton youngster, 24, played far more often this term than anticipated.
Now Burnley, as well as Newcastle, are thought to be monitoring his situation.
