Liverpool look set to loan out Caoimhin Kelleher during the winter window.

According to the Liverpool Echo Jurgen Klopp is looking for a temporary move for the ‘keeper who needs more game time.

The 21-year-old shot stopper has impressed during two first team appearances in the Carabao Cup this season.

The Irish prospect needs a move to prevent his progression stalling. 

Despite looking impressive he has no chance of playing another first team minute this season.

Liverpool number one Alisson Becker is immovable. If Alisson is fit and available he will start the majority of our games.

Former West Ham United ‘keeper Adrian has proven himself an able deputy. The 32-year-old Spaniard stepped up when needed and looked a class act. He’ll likely become our cup ‘keeper for the rest of the campaign. 

 

Kelleher could well be our third-choice goalkeeper but why waste his talent in that position. Veteran ‘keeper Andy Lonergan is the perfect man to fill that spot.

Liverpool should loan out Caoimhin Kelleher to continue his progression into a world-class goalkeeper. It is exactly what the Irish U21 international needs right now. 

Regular, high level football will help him fulfill his potential. If a move to Championship high-flyers Preston comes off it would be the perfect fit.

Kelleher can gain experience at a good level that will stand him in good stead moving forward.

Who knows? Preston could get promoted this season and he can continue his progression with them in the Premier League.
