Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has indicated that he will keep hold of Divock Origi for the rest of the season, even as rumours indicate that he might be leaving.

Origi, who has been sent on loan to gain first-time experience has been linked with Premier League rivals Wolves, West Ham and Fulham, with reports indicating he might be leaving during the January transfer. 

However, the latest reports indicate that Klopp will hold on to the Belgium international after the team lost Dominic Solanke, who was sold to Bournemouth for £19million.

Barring a change of heart, Origi will remain at Anfield until May as back up, along with Daniel Sturridge, for Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah.

Westham, Fulham and Wolves have shown interest in Origi, and will now have to wait until the end of the season if they are to land Origi. 

Origi is valued at around £20million and has scored 23 goals in 81 appearances for the club.

Origi, who spent last term on loan at Wolfsburg, has a contract with Liverpool until 2020 and would regret having passed the opportunity to sign for Borussia Dortmund in August last year.
