Liverpool youngster set for cut-price £1m move to Premier League rivals after Moreno arrival

Liverpool left back Jack Robinson is set to sign for QPR after being told his first team opportunities will diminish after the signing of Alberto Moreno.

Liverpool's 3-1 defeat to Manchester City has dampened spirits around Anfield as the Reds look to mount another title challenge. The arrival of AC Milan striker Mario Balotelli should boost supporters, and Brendan Rodgers may well look for more signings before the transfer deadline next Monday.

However, the focus could be placed on moving players away from Merseyside. Daniel Agger, Lucas Leiva, Oussama Assaidi and Fabio Borini are all expected to leave the club in a week's time, and a deal has already been agreed to sell one fringe player to a Premier League rival.

According to reports tonight, Queens Park Rangers have agreed a £1m fee with the Reds for 20-year-old left back Jack Robinson as manager Harry Redknapp looks to solve his left back crisis. Armand Traore has been starting at left wing back so far, but with little depth behind him, Redknapp is looking to Robinson to provide competition for former Arsenal youngster Traore.

Robinson, who joined Liverpool as an eight-year-old in 2002, and made his way through the youth setup before being brought into the first team, where has made 11 appearances in four seasons.

The limited playing time has seen Robinson sent out on loan to Wolverhampton Wanderers and Blackpool, where he played a combined 47 games as he continued his development before heading back to Anfield this summer.

Now, Robinson's future appears to have been sealed. Liverpool recently snapped up Spanish international Alberto Moreno in a £12m deal from Sevilla, and with Jose Enrique returning from injury, Robinson has been told that he won't get many chances in the first team this season - leading to QPR snapping him up in a cut-price £1m deal.
