Liam Millar to leave Liverpool on loan

According to The Athletic, Liverpool youngster Liam Millar is on the verge of joining Charlton Athletic.

It has been reported that the 21-year-old Liverpool forward will move to League One club Charlton on loan for the second half of the season.

The Canada international, who can also operate as a left-winger, has been playing for the Reds’ Under-23 side.

Charlton manager Lee Bowyer had earlier spoken of his desire to sign Millar on loan in the January transfer window.

Good move for Liam Millar?

Millar is not going to make a breakthrough in the Liverpool first team at the moment, and it would make sense for him to move to Charlton.

The Addicks are a big club who are aiming to clinch promotion from League One, and the youngster would play in a very competitive environment.

Liverpool open to Sepp van den Berg loan offers

Another player who could leave Liverpool on loan in the January transfer window is Sepp van den Berg, according to Goal.com.

It has been reported that a number of clubs in the Championship have expressed interest in the 19-year-old defender, who cost the Reds £1.3 million in transfer fees when they signed him from PEC Zwolle in the summer of 2019, as reported by BBC Sport.

The report has claimed that defending Premier League champions Liverpool will consider loan offers for the Netherlands Under-19 international, who can operate as a centre-back or as a right-back.

Sensible plan?

Van den Berg played a handful of matches for the first team when he was at PEC Zwolle, and the youngster is at a stage in his career where he could do with competitive football again.

The Championship is a very rigorous and competitive domestic league, and the 19-year-old would learn a lot.
