Liverpool are said to be ‘relaxed’ when it comes to Ben Woodburn and Nat Phillips. The young duo could move after today’s deadline.
This comes from the Liverpool Echo’s Paul Gorst. The journalist held a Q&A on the Echo’s site today where he went over questions from fans.
But it’s transfer deadline day today – the big questions surround what Liverpool will do. And in the case of two young players, it’s relatively straightforward.
“[Liverpool] are relaxed over the futures of the likes of Woodburn and Phillips though with the internal deadline running for another couple of weeks,” said Gorst.
The major transfer deadline is today, of course. But there is a domestic deadline that runs for another ten days. In short, it means Premier League clubs can’t deal with each other or with clubs outside of England after today.
But they have another ten days to deal with clubs in the EFL. It would appear, then, that Liverpool will try and move Woodburn and Phillips to EFL clubs over the next week or so.
What RTK has to say
Not too much to say about this one, is there? Neither Woodburn or Phillips have long-term futures at Liverpool and the only real question is whether they head out on loan or permanently.
Although, it is always worth mentioning the disappointment over Woodburn. He really looked like a potential star for the club – at the very least, that he’d earn a place in the squad.
It really wasn’t that long ago that he was considered the brighter prospect over Trent Alexander-Arnold. Woodburn would get minutes while the right-back sat on the bench.
To say things changed would be an understatement.
