Liverpool have seemingly concluded their incoming business for this window. The rest of this window will be all about the outgoings. Fringe player sales and loans for youngsters. The Reds were thought to be close to securing a temporary move for one of their young stars but this move looks to never have been on. Hull City boss Grant McCann has denied interest in Ben Woodburn.
Record breaking Woodburn
Liverpool fans will remember when Ben Woodburn first burst onto the scene on Merseyside.
The Welsh winger became the club’s youngest ever goal scorer when he netted against Leeds United in the League Cup in November 2016.
Woodburn was just 17 years and 45 days old when he scored against the Yorkshire side.
He spent the season touted as the next best thing, finishing the campaign with nine first team appearances.
Hull City don’t want Woodburn
The Liverpool ECHO recently reported that Hull City were closing in on a loan move for Ben Woodburn.
The 20-year-old’s career has stalled due to a series of injuries and unsuccessful loan moves, he is now looking for another temporary spell away.
However, Tigers boss Grant McCann has rubbished the rumours, telling a press conference, “I honestly don’t know where that story came from”.
What RTK has to say
What on earth is happening with Woodburn then?
First we were told he had secured a loan move to Sparta Rotterdam and then nothing happened, he carried on turning out for the U23s.
Then we were told that the Tigers were stealing a late charge on him, now that’s been rubbished.
Somebody give him a game for crying out loud, the young lad is full of potential and needs to be getting regular first team football to realise that potential.
With the deadline approaching the club are going to have to find him a home ASAP.
