Liverpool U23s striker Jack Dunn has joined League Two side Morecambe on a six-month loan, the Reds confirmed on Saturday.
Dunn will spend the first half of the season under Jim Bentley, likely operating in his natural centre-forward role.
This departure comes as part of a reshuffle of the Reds’ academy ranks, with Beale placing a heavy emphasis on youth following the introduction of the Premier League 2 setup.
Despite age restrictions lifted to include players aged 23 and under, along with three over-age outfield players and a goalkeeper, Beale is looking to field a squad with an “average age of 19.”
This leaves players like Dunn on the periphery, and a move to join Bentley’s Morecambe side should be a positive one.
Dunn has previously turned out on loan with Cheltenham Town and Burton Albion, making his debut for the latter against Morecambe, but his 2015/16 campaign was derailed by injury.
Able to play in a number of roles across the forward line, Dunn’s movement, physicality and eye for goal make him a great option for a League Two side.
The local lad is likely to be followed by further outgoings, with Lloyd Jones among those linked with a loan move away from Merseyside.
Brazilian youngster Allan Rodrigues is poised to join Hertha Berlin, with the midfielder currently on trial with the Bundesliga outfit.
