Liverpool talked to the player but came nowhere near meeting his wage demands.Given said he is keeping himself very fit and is ready if he gets the call – from whoever.“Of course it’s just frustrating not playing, it’s hard to keep training and know there’s no game at the end of the week,” he said. “Things can change quickly in football with injuries and suspensions and if I get an opportunity I’ve got to be ready to take it if that hopefully comes along. I’m fit as a fiddle and feel really sharp. I’m just raring to get that chance.“I played in Stiliyan Petrov’s testimonial in front of 60,000 fans at the weekend and as a player that’s all you want to do, to show people you’ve still got the ability to play in the Premier League.”  SHAY HOPEFUL OF A MOVE OR A CHANCE TO PROVE HIMSELF was last modified: September 11th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Aston VillaLiffordShay Giventransferlast_img read more
