Following Liverpool’s failure to sign their midfielder in the January transfer window, RB Leipzig have published a video of Naby Keita dancing.

The Guinea international has already signed for the Reds for £57 million, but will join them in July this year despite talks that he was set to move last month.

Just after the transfer deadline day, the German Bundesliga outfit sent a timely reminder to the English Premier League side that Keita is still their player until the end of the season.

The video follows a number of attempts by Jurgen Klopp to have the 22-year-old last month as Phillipe Coutinho’s replacement, with the Brazilian having joined Barcelona last month for £142million.

With the video, it looks like the Bundesliga club have celebrated the fact that Keita has stayed, as the midfielder is seen dancing above the caption which highlights that the January transfer window is now finished.
