Benitez brushed off talk of a move for Darlow before revealing that Rob Elliot, another of his goalkeepers, could leave in the January transfer window.

"The only one available in the window is Rob Elliot," said Benitez. "We need them."

Elliot, signed from Charlton Athletic in the summer of 2011, has made 68 appearances for the club.

The 32-year-old's last appearance came against Manchester City just over a year ago.
