Jordan said: "It's absolute garbage to say that I am thinking of leaving.

"Do you think I have spent pounds 28m just to walk away?

"My aim when I bought the club was to take it into the Premiership and that is what I still aim to do.

"Playing Liverpool is just giving me a taste of where I want this club to be."
