Liverpool are looking to find a club to take Tyler Morton on-loan for the rest of the season.
Having been hampered by injury throughout pre-season, Morton was unable to stake his claim for a spot in Jurgen Klopp’s first team, as had been expected.
As a result, Hull Live claim that the Reds are ‘keen’ to let the 20-year-old leave on-loan to help ‘build his experience.’
The reason a Hull based outlet is reporting this, is that the Tigers are claimed to be one of the clubs most interested in Morton.
As well as Hull, there is said to be a ‘host’ of other Championship clubs in the mix, too.

Liverpool looking for Morton loan
There’s no question, another loan move is the order of the day for Morton between now and next Friday.
Of course, it wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world if the Reds were to keep him. He’s natural in a defensive midfield role and would probably get some minutes over the course of the season.
But in reality, Morton isn’t yet good enough to be relied upon for Liverpool. Spending a season on the bench or out of the squad also wouldn’t really benefit him.
The England U21 international did well on the whole at Blackburn Rovers last year, and another move of similar stature would serve him well.
From there, a decision can be made next summer on what the next step is for Morton.
With Liverpool still not settled with their midfield, the academy graduate could still be a long-term option for Klopp. The manager called him ‘incredible’ before his loan last season [The Times] and is obviously a fan.
If he can go away and get another good 12 months of football under his belt, maybe he can step up in 2024/25. For now though, let’s hope Morton ends up in the good, temporary home Liverpool are trying to find for him.
