Liverpool have had a quiet January transfer window. The Reds have been begged to bring in a centre back yet the only business we’ve seen has been outgoing loans. We’ve been keeping an eye on our academy stars out on temporary moves; Adam Lewis scored on his Plymouth Argyle debut this week and drew praise from manager Ryan Lowe.
Adam Lewis story
Adam Lewis has been on the Liverpool books for most of his life.
The youngster joined the academy at U6 level and rose through the ranks, impressing at every level.
Steven Gerrard was impressed by the left back when the Anfield legend was managing the U18s, telling the club site:
“I want to keep him for as long as I can, but for me, he’s such a threat on the left side.

“Going forward, I haven’t seen anyone as good as him at that age, in terms of quality and what he can deliver in the final third.”
This season saw Lewis join Amiens on loan but his spell in France was a flop.
The 21-year-old was subsequently recalled and sent to League One.
Adam Lewis scores on Plymouth debut
This week saw Lewis make his first start for his Plymouth.
The youngster took on the left wing back role as the Pilgrims made the long trip to Sunderland.
Adam Lewis scored on his Plymouth debut, netting in the 11th minute.
Plymouth went on to win the game 2-1. Speaking after the game, as per the Plymouth Herald, manager Ryan Lowe praised Lewis:
“Credit where credit is due, Adam has only been with us a short while but he has listened and he’s learning every day.
“He has come from a football club that play a different brand and a different way. We play with wing-backs and he has gone right in there.”
What RTK has to say
What a start for the young man.
Lewis needs to kick start his senior career and what better way to do it than with his senior goal.
The academy star is ideally suited to Plymouth. He is effective anywhere on the left side of the pitch and Lowe uses attacking wing backs, getting the best out of Lewis’ offensive and defensive talents.
Fingers crossed he continues to impress.
