Liverpool prospect has just won Young Player of the Season out on loan

Liverpool youngster Leighton Clarkson has been named Aberdeen’s Young Player of the Season after an impressive year out on loan in Scotland.

The Dons announced on their official website that the 21-year-old had claimed the award following on from what has been a good year for Clarkson, with the versatile midfielder bagging five goals and eight assists for the Scottish Premiership side.

With rumours circulating that Clarkson could soon leave Liverpool on a permanent basis, the youngster picking up this award from Aberdeen could add some value to the midfielder’s price tag, with the Reds likely to sell the midfielder if a decent offer comes in.

Lauded as ‘unbelievable’ for his performances for Aberdeen this season, Clarkson has seemingly found his level in Scotland this campaign, and a return north of the border to a Rangers or even a Celtic could be a fantastic move for the Lancashire-born talent.

Indeed, Clarkson’s displays have been well-rewarded this campaign with Aberdeen naming the youngster as their Young Player of the Year, and the midfielder himself should use the accolade as a motive to leave Liverpool for regular football away from Anfield.

After a somewhat disappointing loan spell at Blackburn Rovers, Clarkson has more than proved his worth this season with Aberdeen, and the former England youth international must now be thinking of a permanent move this summer given his limited opportunities at Liverpool.

Clarkson’s midfield versatility will already make the 21-year-old an intriguing option for many top sides, and with the youngster impressing at a club as big as Aberdeen, the Liverpool talent could soon have the world at his feet if the right offers come in this summer.
