Sebastian Coates could be loaned out next season

on 14.05.2012

Liverpool are exploring the possibility of loaning out Uruguayan defender Sebastian Coates next season.

Coates, 21, was signed from Nacional last August for £7m after winning Best Young Player at the Copa America.

The 6ft 6inch centre back has started just 8 times in his debut season and has been overlooked in favour of veteran defender Jamie Carragher when injuries to Daniel Agger and Martin Skrtel have occurred in recent weeks. Many supporters have found the use of Carragher perplexing, with the benefit of using Coates seemingly much greater.

Liverpool are now exploring the options to loan out the young defender next season, if the right club can be found.
