The Telegraph is reporting that Kenny Dalglish’s proposed return to Anfield is far from complete as no progress has been made in discussions.

Rafa Benitez is believed to be interested in installing Dalglish, one of his predecessors at Anfield, in an advisory role overseeing youth development at Melwood.

The Kop boss has held talks with the legendary Scot and says they have been “positive” and wants Dalglish onboard after becoming unhappy at the performance of the club’s academy and an overhaul of its staff, from technical director Piet Hamburg down, is expected this summer.

Dalglish has said that he would be delighted to return to Liverpool “in whatever capacity” he could but admitted that, while any deal could have been “done and dusted” straight away, such was his keenness to return to Anfield, but no formal offer has been made to him.

“It would be perfect if it happened, a fantastic thing for everybody, but everything that can be said has already been said. I don’t know how or when it came out but it came out too early,” Dalglish said.

“When it came out everything could have been done and dusted in one go but it was just an idea.”

Dalglish announced that Anfield will stage a Hillsborough memorial match on May 14th in aid of his wife Marina’s charity appeal which is raising funds for a new radiotherapy unit at University Hospital in Aintree.
The Scot, a regular in the Anfield directors’ box, will probably be present on Sunday to watch Newcastle try to halt Liverpool’s Premier League title campaign and help their increasingly desperate struggle to avoid relegation.
