Boyes managed to clock up just two appearances in League One after joining the club in August. The ECHO claims Liverpool’s decision to recall the teenager back to Anfield was motivated by a lack of game time.
He was named on Fleetwood’s bench for the club’s opening two games of the season before playing 90 minutes in the next two matches – a 1-0 defeat at home to Wimbledon and a 2-1 loss away at Rochdale.
Since then, however, Boyes has failed to make the bench on 12 separate occasions. He hasn’t clocked up a single minute of action since October.
Boyes, who has made two first-team appearances for Liverpool, will now return to training at the club’s AXA Training Centre.

What RTK has to say
Liverpool’s recent injury crisis has made the club’s academy system all the more relevant this season. A number of youngsters at Kirkby have found themselves promoted to the senior set-up.
The Reds have been pushed to their physical limits during the gruelling winter period – a rest is certainly due. It’s only natural, then, that Klopp starts looking at academy players.
Defence is the key issue, of course. Billy Koumetio has been fairly close to the first team and Boyes could return looking to challenge for his place.
With an FA Cup clash against Aston Villa next Friday, Klopp could consider playing the teenage duo together at Villa Park.
The likes of Fabinho, Nat Phillips and Rhys Williams could benefit from a rest period, after all.
