Brendan Rodgers reveals Jordan Rossiter will not be sent on loan

The Liverpool boss has stated that the young midfielder will stay at Anfield and has a role to play at the club.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has stated that promising youngster Jordan Rossiter will not be sent out on loan this season and has a role to play in the Reds first team, as per the club official website.

The Northern Irish manager has opted to partner English pair Jordan Henderson and James Milner in the heart of his team so far this season, with Emre Can a deputy to the homegrown duo.

However, with a long season ahead, Rodgers has been speaking about some of the Merseyside club’s young stars - and feels that Rossiter will have a role to play in the first team.

The 18-year-old is yet to make his senior debut in the Premier League for his boyhood club, but is tipped to have a bright future.

The tenacious England under-18’s midfielder will have time on the pitch according to Rodgers.

“I’m sure one or two of them will probably go out, but we have got the Europa League and cup games,” Rodgers told the club’s official website.

“Jordan Rossiter is a young boy who has moved up here now to be in the first-team changing room. He’s a really valuable player for our squad.

“At such a young age he’s got great maturity and I can see him as being one that will be staying here.”

A former captain of the Liverpool under-19’s side, Rossiter joined his local club at the age of six and is one of the Reds’ brightest prospects.

With Steven Gerrard leaving the club in the summer, most of the Anfield faithful would surely love to have another homegrown centre forward to take the team forward.
