With the January transfer window due to close on Thursday night, Bobby Clark is one of those who could leave Liverpool amid interest from the Football League.
When the deadline passes at 11pm on Thursday, the Reds could be a few bodies lighter when it comes to the fringes of the first-team squad and beyond.
There are not likely to be any high-profile exits, of course, with Jurgen Klopp‘s senior ranks to stay largely the same.
According to the Liverpool Echo‘s Keifer MacDonald, though, a decision will be made on whether or not to send Clark on loan as clubs from the Championship and below circle.
The 18-year-old is said to be of interest to “several” sides, one of which is in the second tier and the remainder in League One.
That is yet to materialise in official contact, but an increase in competition in Klopp’s midfield as players return could result in a temporary switch.
There are high hopes for the teenager, though there is a level of uncertainty over many players as Klopp plays out his final months on Merseyside.
Clark shared a photo of himself with the legendary manager to his social media channels on Monday, in a reminder that, if a loan move beckons, their time together could be coming to an early end.
It remains to be seen whether a move will be granted, and much could hinge on the fitness of Klopp’s squad after the visit of Chelsea on Wednesday night.
But a loan could certainly benefit Clark, who had previously attracted interest from Derby, who are currently fourth in League One under the impressive Paul Warne.
Owen Beck will complete his return to Dundee on Tuesday, following a brief stint back at Liverpool as left-back cover.
