PHOTOS: Ryan Kent, Cameron Brannagan and Connor Randall join in Liverpool first-team training

The trio were among several youngsters training with the Liverpool first-team.

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has proven throughout his managerial career that he is not afraid to bring in the odd youngster or two to first-team training.

The likes of Raheem Sterling and Jon Flanagan are examples of when that approach has worked for the club.

In recent weeks the likes of Jordan Rossiter, Jerome Sinclair and Lloyd Jones have all got involved, while Marc Pelosi, Harry Wilson and Daniel Trickett-Smith have also banged on the door of the first team.

Yesterday's session was no different, with a player many believe can be the next Sterling, to breakthrough to the first-team, taking part.

Ryan Kent is considered one of the top talents at Liverpool and the England youngster was snapped in training yesterday - as he hopes to make it big at Liverpool.

It is not the first time he has trained with the first-team in recent times so his promise is obviously impressing Rodgers.

Also joining in Liverpool training were Cameron Brannegan. The 18-year-old midfielder was joined by local lad Connor Randall, a right-back with England youth credentials, who has rarely been spotted training at this level.

Time will tell if any of this trio get their chance in the Liverpool first-team.
