Dirk Kuyt is not leaving Liverpool to go to Italy, this according to the Mirror.

It is no secret that Dirk Kuyt has had a poor season for Liverpool thus far as he is no longer one of the first names on the team sheet. But following his late winner for Liverpool yesterday (Saturday) against Manchester United in the FA Cup, he is the darling of Liverpool fans right now.

It has been suggested that Kuyt is unhappy with his role at Liverpool right now which has seen him come off the bench for most parts of the season. Italian clubs Fiorentina and Roma have reportedly enquired about signing the Dutchman but Liverpool have turned them away saying that the striker is not going anywhere.

If Kuyt is happy staying at Liverpool and coming off the bench like he did yesterday, then I would be more than happy to have him remain with the squad. He is all about hard working and running around and at times popping up with a crucial goal. It is squad players like this that we need if we are to build a strong side to challenge for major honours.

Seeing the likes of Kuyt, Adam and Bellamy coming off the bench against Manchester United made me happy as in the past we have often been starved of quality players coming off our bench. All three substitutes made by Dalglish yesterday played an important role in getting us the victory.

DO you think Liverpool should sell Dirk Kuyt?
