Auxerre forward Djibril Cisse has reiterated his desire to sign for Liverpool, in a move which is almost certain to go through at the end of the season.

“I still want to go Liverpool. Gerard Houllier’s position makes no difference,’ said Cisse.

‘If I leave at the end of the season it will be for Liverpool.”

The 22-year-old Frenchman was reported to have flown into Liverpool last weekend for a medical, but he denies having signed a contract with the Anfield club.
