Any thoughts Liverpool may have had about signing Jackson Martinez appear to be over as he has made it clear he is staying at Porto.

Liverpool: Martinez wants to stay in Portugal

Although he has yet to agree a new contract with Porto, and his agent has not ruled out a move, the player himself says he is happy where he is and does not want to leave Portugal.
He told Radio Renascenca: "I am happy to be here at a club like this.
"I am enjoying the opportunity to play here, I want to repeat what happened last season and win more trophies with Porto."

Reds boss Brendan Rodgers had been linked with a move for the striker as he looks to add to his front line but, irrespective of where Luis Suarez ends up, Martinez says he has no interest in a move.
The Colombian has also been linked with a move to Premier League rivals Tottenham as well as Napoli and Borussia Dortmund, but it is looking increasingly likely that he will stay where he is.
