Morton bid rejected and Phillips transfer interest – Latest Liverpool FC News

There have been key updates regarding the futures of Tyler Morton and Nat Phillips at Liverpool, while their new goalkeeping coach has been lauded.


Morton bid rejected

Morton shone on loan at Championship side Hull last season, making 35 league starts, and it looks like he is a wanted man once again.

According to Sky Germany’s Florian Plettenberg, RB Leipzig are keen on signing the midfielder on a loan-to-buy basis, but Liverpool have already rejected one bid.

While a move to the Bundesliga side seemingly appeals to Morton, the structure of the deal is something the Reds are “not interested” in.

Liverpool have so much midfield depth heading into next season, so another temporary move away makes complete sense for the 21-year-old.

The club could, however, be open to a permanent deal, with a host of other clubs interested and a £20 million price tag set.
