The Reds are awash with young talent. Jürgen Klopp has an embarrassment of academy stars to call upon when needed, with so many players threatening a breakthrough we can expect some to head out on loan. According to the Liverpool ECHO, Liverpool may let Caoimhin Kelleher leave on loan before the window closes.

Kelleher has made three appearances for the first team this season.

The Republic of Ireland keeper was selected between the sticks throughout The Reds League Cup run.

Kelleher was incredibly impressive when he kept a clean sheet against Milton Keynes Dons in September.

It would have been tough to criticise the youngster despite him conceding 10 in his next two games, shipping five each against Arsenal and Aston Villa.

The keeper was particularly unlucky against Aston Villa when an own goal looped helplessly over his head.

In each game he was protected by a young defence that were facing senior Premier League stars.

At just 21-years-old the Irishman still has his entire career ahead of him, keepers don’t tend to peak in their careers until their 30s.


According to the ECHO, Liverpool could allow Kelleher to leave on loan with Preston North End a likely destination.

What RTK has to say

This makes a lot of sense.

Caoimhin is a talented youngster but he won’t get near the first team for a while.

Alisson Becker is set to be the undisputed first choice shot stopper for another six or seven years. Adrian has proved a reliable backup.

Kelleher needs first team football to continue his development, with his chances at Liverpool very slim a loan move seems to be in everybody’s interest.

Fingers crossed a spell away will see the Irishman showcase just how much potential he has, he could be the long term successor to Alisson if he manages to kick on.
