Liverpool youngster Allan outlines the next step in his career

Allan has returned to Liverpool following a loan with Seinajoen Jalkapallokerho.

Allan returned to Liverpool this week following the end of his loan deal in Finland, and he has spoken to the official Reds website about what the next step in his career will be as he looks to break into Jurgen Klopp’s first-team.

Allan said: “I’ll be focusing on my training sessions at Liverpool for the next month or two when I return and we’ll see what happens after that, but I trust Liverpool and rely on their decision – I’ll do whatever they feel is appropriate for me. For now, my main objective is to gain more experience – it’s not yet the time to think about winning big things. I’m a fighter and I’ll stick together with the team and go the extra mile. You can count on me as I’ll give my best to help Liverpool.”

Allan is set to have a period of time off as he has just returned after his loan spell in Finland, where he won the league with Seinajoen.

He only signed for Liverpool in September, moving from Internacional in Brazil to Anfield, and was immediately shipped out to Finland.

The 18-year-old midfielder made eight appearances for the Finnish champions, scoring one goal and assisting four more, impressing during his time with the club.

Now that he is back at Anfield, it is still not expected that he will play any time soon for Klopp’s first-team, and another loan away from Anfield is likely.

Allan has confirmed that he will be focusing his training on Liverpool for the next couple of months, but will then do whatever the Reds ask him for the continuation of his development.

It would be no surprise to see Allan shipped back away from Merseyside during the January transfer window, likely on a loan until the end of the 2015/16 season, in a league which offers more competition than the Finnish top flight.

He has already shown he is ready to make a step up in quality, and clearly Liverpool see a wealth of potential in the youngster, and would want for him to develop to the best of his abilities.

There is no knowing yet where Allan will be heading next, but if he continues to perform as he has been in recent weeks, there is a great chance he could be in the Liverpool first-team next season.
