Nunes “nonsense” & Morton loan “on hold” – Latest Liverpool FC News

Liverpool’s 11th loan deal of the summer looks to be on hold, for now at least, while the Portuguese links to midfielder Matheus Nunes has been described as “nonsense.”


Morton loan ‘on hold’ for now

It emerged on Friday that Tyler Morton was Blackburn bound on a season-long loan deal, with the 19-year-old ready to continue his development with continued game time.

The midfielder has impressed Jurgen Klopp in training this summer after a breakout year last season that returned nine appearances, six of which came as part of a starting XI.

A move was expected to be sealed in a swift fashion but Lancashire Live reporter Rich Sharpe has offered an update, saying the deal is “on hold due to injuries within the Liverpool squad.”

The Reds are currently in Austria as part of their pre-season training camp and currently only have one known injury in midfield in Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who did not travel with the squad.

It makes for an interesting development with the deal agreed between Liverpool and Blackburn for Morton to make the switch.

No new midfield concerns looked to emerge from the win over RB Leipzig on Friday but it may just be a case of waiting until the Austrian camp is concluded before Morton can make his move.

One to keep an eye on.
