Liverpool Owner Defends British Transfer Fees

By on August 30, 2011

Liverpool owner John W Henry has denied they paid over the odds for their British signings.

The Reds paid close to £80million for Andy Carroll, Jordan Henderson, Charlie Adam and Stewart Downing with some questioning the price of the players. But Henry told the Telegraph:

“Everyone seemed to think that Liverpool was over-valuing British players this summer. But when the Premier League has the whole world to choose players from and there is a substantial homegrown rule, British players are going to be highly valued. Look at the prices paid this year for Conor Wickham and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

“At Liverpool we have purchased each player for a different reason. It doesn’t mean we are going to solve all of our issues in one season, but we are headed in the right direction.”
