Connor Randall has told the Liverpool Echo he is yet to hold talks with Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp about a potential loan move this summer.

The midfielder is highly rated at the club, having starred in the youth ranks for several years.

His manager is clearly a fan too, having handed him his Premier League debut against Bournemouth back in April.

However, with new signigns arriving at the club this summer, the competition for places has increased at the club and Randall may find game time hard to come by next season.

A loan move would make sense for him and would be more beneficial for his development than another year in the Under 21’s, but he admits that he is yet to talk to Klopp about such a move.

“It’s a hard task to become a regular at a club like this but that’s the target,” he told the Liverpool Echo.

“We’ve not had that conversation yet [about a loan]. I’m just focused on the tour and then we’ll see if that conversation occurs. If the chance came up we would have to speak about it as getting games is the main thing.”

It remains to be seen whether Randall does end up making a move away from Anfield this summer in search of game time.

Given Liverpool have just the Premier League to focus on; Jurgen Klopp is unlikely to rotate his squad as much as he did last season.

That means the youngsters will face a tougher battle for game time and a loan move would make sense for both parties.
