Liverpool reject bids for 23 y/o midfielder from five clubs

Despite reported interest from five different clubs, Liverpool aren’t entertaining any thoughts of selling or loaning out Kevin Stewart.

Kevin Stewart is hardly a vital player in Liverpool’s team but his presence in the team is one that goes unnoticed. He might be at the very bottom of the midfield pecking order, but Stewart is a very decent holding midfielder and is one that Jurgen Klopp has taken to.

According to the Liverpool Echo, two Premier League clubs in Swansea City and West Bromwich Albion are interested in Stewart while Newcastle United, Aston Villa and Brighton and Hove Albion are also assessing the option of signing the 23-year-old. Liverpool value Stewart at around £12 million which would be easy for Swansea and West Brom to afford.

A lack of game time has seen Stewart linked with a move away from Liverpool but Jurgen Klopp views the former Spurs man as the perfect squad player. His performances last season and hard work in training earned him a new five-year contract in November and despite concrete interest from several clubs, Liverpool are not considering offloading Stewart any time soon.

With Jordan Henderson struggling with a heel issue, Stewart may find himself on the receiving end of more game time, especially after Emre Can’s poor display in the holding midfield role against Sunderland on Monday.
