Report: Liverpool's 'wonderful' teenaged international star now set for loan in League One

Liverpool youngster Conor Bradley is set to go on-loan to League One club Bolton Wanderers.

That’s according to Goal, who claim that the 18-year-old is on the verge of completing a season-long loan deal.

Bradley looks set to be one of a whole host of young players departing Liverpool this summer. Seven more players including Rhys Williams and Sepp van den Berg are also reported to be on the way out of Anfield on a temporary basis.

Following Calvin Ramsay’s arrival at Liverpool this week, Bradley has seen another player jump in-front of his path to the first team.

Conor still in Klopp’s thoughts

League One looks like being a good place for Bradley for now. Still only eighteen, he needs regular football to supplement his appearances for the Northern Ireland national team.

Bolton had a steady season last year, but could perhaps push on towards the play-off places.

Following Ramsay’s arrival, it was imperative that Bradley secured himself a temporary home. Having broken into Jurgen Klopp’s squad last season, he couldn’t afford to drop out of sight.

Hopefully his move brings about some visibility, which will keep him in the manager’s thoughts.

However, long-term, it doesn’t look brilliant for him that Liverpool have signed a player who’s even younger than he is.

Ramsay is expected to play a first-team role from the get-go next season. Unless Bradley can really standout at Bolton, it will be difficult for him to once again jump past the Scottish teenager.

Still, Klopp is well aware of Bradley’s talents at least. The manager called him ‘wonderful’ via liverpoolfc.com last season and certainly won’t have given up on him making it at Liverpool.

Best of luck at Bolton, Conor.
