Liverpool Ready To Sanction Deal For 5ft 11″ Defender

Liverpool Under-21 boss Michael Beale has claimed that the Reds are ready to sanction a loan move for young midfielder Cameron Brannagan, according to the Liverpool Echo.

Brannagan is highly-rated by his coaches at Anfield, and has been tipped to go all the way in the game. The English teenager has been at Liverpool since the age of seven and has earned comparisons with Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere, says the Mirror.

Brannagan, 19, spent last season in and out of the Liverpool first team and was even named by Brendan Rodgers among the substitutes for some games towards the end of last season’s campaign.

Beale has now confirmed that the Merseyside club are ready to listen to offers for the English play-maker

“If a club is interested in Cam we are more than happy to listen,” Beale told the Echo.

“He’s also desperate to take that next step as well. It would be lovely for him to be in and around the first team, but at the moment that would be as a bit-part player and mainly in cup competitions.

“That was his 42nd appearance in the league for the U21s, which is almost two full seasons and we think now he needs to go out on loan.”

Brannagan made his Liverpool first-team bow just weeks ago, featuring in the Kops’ 1-1 draw against French Ligue 1 side Bordeaux. He came off the bench to play in the last 11 minutes in France.

But it is unlikely that the young playmaker will feature against Sion on Thursday night, especially as he started Liverpool’s 2-1 win over Leicester City’s U21s on Monday night.
