Dossena, 28, is one of under-fire Reds boss Rafa Benitez's worst signings and has failed to convince the Spaniard he deserves a first-team berth.

The Italian cost �7 million when he joined from Udinese in the summer of 2008.

Benitez has come under huge criticism for selling John Arne Riise to Roma for �4 million and paying a much bigger fee for Dossena who has struggled to make any impact on the starting line-up at Anfield.
