Liverpool appear to have already made a decision on Leighton Clarkson‘s future, with the club ready for offers from clubs in England and Scotland.
Clarkson bounced back from a disappointing spell at Blackburn to enjoy a breakout loan with Aberdeen last season, which saw him play 38 times.
The 21-year-old scored six goals and laid on another eight during his time at Pittrodie, which led to speculation over a possible return to Liverpool as a homegrown player.
However, the club will now “listen to offers” for the academy graduate, who is “expected” to depart on a permanent transfer.
That is according to The Athletic‘s James Pearce, who reports that clubs in the Championship are interested as well as sides in the Scottish Premiership.
There is no guarantee Clarkson will join the Dons, though, given interest from the English second tier, with West Brom and QPR both suitors in the past.
Reading are also claimed to be pursuing the versatile midfielder, but their drop down to League One makes any deal unlikely.
Clarkson has a year left on his contract at Liverpool, and having turned 21 in October it stands to reason that the club would now look to sell.
