Steven Gerrard isn't for sale says Roy Hodgson. Liverpool have no interest in selling their captain and haven't received any bids for the midfielder despite numerous stories in the press says Hodgson. "I have met with Steven and thought the talks were positive," said the boss. "We are in a situation where we hear our players are being courted by other teams but it is all just rumours. "What we haven't had is a club wanting to buy Steven Gerrard. Steven Gerrard is not for sale - I made that clear to him. "I told him I supported the club's policy that we don't want to sell our best players and have to start building again. "We want to build our team around these players. He understands that position, but clubs can get into players' ears and make promises. It destabilises the club and the players and we can't do anything about it."
