Young Liverpool goalkeeper Harvey Davies is currently on loan at League Two side Crewe Alexandra where he has made four appearances so far this season having been made the first choice shot stopper.

Speaking to the Liverpool Echo, the 19-year-old outlined his plans for the future.

“Hopefully to be back at Liverpool with a few games under my belt. Following a similar pathway to Caoimhin Kelleher and eventually making it through to the first team,” said Davies.

“Playing Champions League games, Premier League games and winning cups. And then hopefully, granted everything goes my way, one day be the first choice.

“Caoimhin is the perfect example. He’s patient. One of the most patient people I know. He’s got what it takes to be a top, top goalkeeper – he is a top, top goalkeeper.

“It goes to show that there is a path for academy goalkeepers and not just first-team players like Curtis [Jones] and Trent [Alexander-Arnold].

“To see him, only a couple of years older than me, makes me want to follow in his footsteps.”

Davies’ Crewe switch is the first loan move of his career, so for him to hit the ground running would be a major boost in the early stages of his career.

Yet to make an appearance for the first team, the teenager has been an ever present in the Reds’ academy set-ups, specifically for the Under-18s, Under-19s and Under-21s in recent years.

What next for Davies?

There still seems to be some way between him and the first team fold with Alisson Becker and Kelleher currently ahead of him, but should he impress whilst on loan his squad status may well be revisited next summer.

It is likely, however, that Davies will need more than just the one loan spell to break his way into Jurgen Klopp’s plans.
