Exclusive: Cameron Brannagan could leave Liverpool next summer due to lack of chances; interest from both England and abroad

Paisley Gateway

It seems the talented Liverpool teenager's future could be away from Anfield.

According to HITC Sport sources Liverpool midfielder Cameron Brannagan could leave the club at the end of the season.

The 19-year-old attacking midfielder is one of the most talented players to come through the ranks at Anfield for many years, but as yet he has not made his first-team debut for Brendan Rodgers’ side and he is said to be growing increasingly frustrated at his lack of chances.

Such is Brannagan’s ability that he was expected to be involved in Liverpool’s pre-season tour but a bout of tonsillitis robbed him of that chance and despite his swift recovery he seems no closer to getting the nod from Rodgers.

The fact Brannagan remains a member of the under-21 side while other players are being promoted around him would not be so strange were it not for his unquestionable talent.

Brannagan is the captain of Liverpool’s under-21 side, featuring 40 times at that level to date as well as scoring two goals in five UEFA Youth League matches last season. And he showed a tantalising glimpse of his ability when he featured in an All-Star match at Anfield earlier this year, outshining some of the biggest names to ever wear the shirt.

Despite that Brannagan remains on the periphery and our sources claim the player is likely to leave Liverpool when his current contract comes to an end in June if things remain the same.

We also understand that a number of clubs – both in England and abroad – have already made it clear they would be interested in signing Brannagan if he did move on, and considering he would be available on a free transfer (with nominal compensation to be agreed) he would be a bargain.

Liverpool have some of the most talented young players in England on their books but Brannagan is one of the very best, and it would be a huge shame for Reds fans if they do not get to see the midfielder further develop at a club he first joined 13 years ago.

However if he does move on there will no shortage of suitors and he still looks destined to be a future Premier League star.
