Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers claims star striker Luis Suarez understands the position taken by the club over his future.
The Reds chief has explained to Suarez that they are not intending to sell him despite the fact that he is pushing for a move, as he wants to play for a Champions League club.
Liverpool rejected Arsenal's offer last week, which they wrongly thought had triggered a release clause, and the boss claims the striker has shown an excellent attitude since then.
"It's a story that can keep running but for me there is no new news," Rodgers told the Liverpool Echo. "Luis is happy. He totally understands the club's point of view.
"He's in a difficult position in terms of not being able to play because of his suspension - he will sit out the first six games and he will miss playing football.
"But he's working hard and remains part of the group. He hasn't been moping about.
"It's obviously difficult when you come back after a break but he has settled in and has been working well. He needs to get up to speed and we will continue to work to get all the players ready for the first game of the season."
