Done Deals: Four More Players Leave Liverpool On Loan

A number of Liverpool youngsters have been allowed to leave the club on loan, it has been confirmed today.

The most high-profile of these is defender Jon Flanagn, who completes a season-long move to Premier League newcomers Burnley. Elsewhere, Liverpool have officially ratified Allan Rodrigues’ temporary transfer to German side Hertha Berlin, Lloyd Jones is to join Swindon Town, while Cameron Brannagan is heading to Championship side Wigan Athletic.

Flanagan had been tipped for a loan move to Burnley for some time. The 23-year-old is still recovering from an injury that kept him out of action for over 18 months, and while manager Jurgen Klopp would like to have kept hold of him, he understands that the versatile full-back needs regular first team football to fully recover.

Speaking to the Burnley website, Flanagan also expressed this feeling, explaining that going to Turf Moor for the season will help him massively in his recovery:

Meanwhile, Allen’s loan move to Bundesliga side Hertha Berlin was finally confirmed by Liverpool today. The 19-year-old Brazilian midfielder has been training with the German club recently, and they have finally been able to sign the highly-rated young player

He continues to have work permit issues, and as such needs to be loaned to a club in Europe as he waits for international clearance. Although he only joined Liverpool in September 2015, this is already his third loan spell, having already spent time at SJK and Saint-Truidense.

Nontheless, he has a big future at Liverpool, with Klopp reportedly a massive fan of what Allan’s ability, both current and potential.

BBC Wiltshire this afternoon broke the news that 20-year-old central defender Lloyd Jones is to join League One side Swindon Town for the season. The England under-20 international signed a similar deal with Blackpool last season, but the move was hampered by serious injury, with Jones only making ten appearances for the side.

And finally, highly-rated midfielder Cameron Brannagan is to join Championship outfit Wigan until the end of the season, as confirmed by the Liverpool Echo.

Liverpool rejected a £1m bid from the same club in early July, but are happy to let the 20-year-old go to the DW Stadium as long as they sign an agreement that he must play in at least 75% of their fixtures (when fit), or risk financial penalties.

The report states that he may play some part in Liverpool’s friendly against Barcelona at Wembley on Saturday, having also been taken on the club’s recent pre-season tour of the United States, before joining up with his new teammates early next week.

Once the Jones and Brannagan deals are confirmed, that will take the number of temporary Liverpool departures for the summer to eight. Others may yet follow, and a number of fringe players – Lazar Markovic, Andre Wisdom etc. – could also finding themselves leaving Anfield on a temporary basis before the end of the transfer window.
