Manchester City failed with a swoop for Liverpool defender Stephane Henchoz on transfer deadline day.
The Eastlands outfit had been looking to bolster their defence and Henchoz was the man they targeted.
Up until Tuesday it is believed that Kevin Keegan was very hopeful of sealing a deal.
However, Liverpool pulled the plug on the deal due to their own problems in the transfer market.
The Reds had been looking to snap up Mallorca defender David Cortes, but that deal floundered meaning Rafa Benitez opted to keep Henchoz.
