Dejan Lovren has hit out at Southampton for turning down Liverpool's £20m offer for him, and says that "my head is already at Liverpool".

The Croatian defender told Sportske Novosti  of his anger that he was not told of the £20m bid for the player who joined the Saints from Lyon in 2013.

"Liverpool sent a £20m offer and they [Southampton] paid £9m for me, so they would've earned twice the amount.," he said.

"At this point, I don't know what I'll do and I don't like it. It was unbelievable that a few days ago I had an offer of £20m. It was in the morning and by the afternoon the club had said I was not for sale. Frankly, my head is already at Liverpool.


The 25-year-old also criticised Southampton's ambition in the blast, after the club sold Adam Lallana, Luke Shaw and Rickie Lambert this summer.

"Look, I'd gladly stay in Southampton if the club had any ambitions, if they kept the key players. [If that had happened] not even the Liverpool bid would have dissuaded me."
