Liverpool youngster Kieran Morrison is set to sign a new contract with the Reds, and it looks like that’s very welcome news indeed for the Merseyside giants as he’d been attracting interest from elsewhere.
According to Fabrizio Romano, Morrison’s new deal is nearly done, but he’d also been attracting interest from English and German clubs, so it’s clear that he’s already well known and highly regarded elsewhere.
Speaking exclusively to CaughtOffside for his latest Daily Briefing column, Romano explained that there was interest in Morrison but that a new deal at Anfield looks to be agreed and almost completed.
The transfer news expert added that he’s not yet clear what Liverpool’s plans are for Morrison in terms of a possible first-team place in the near future, or perhaps a loan spell away from the club.
The 17-year-old looks to have an exciting future ahead of him, but these decisions will have to be made a bit later as LFC are set to have a new manager and sporting director in place soon.
“Liverpool talent Kieran Morrison is set to sign a new three-year deal at the club despite being linked with move away last summer. The highly-rated young midfielder, born in 2006, has verbally agreed to new contract. It will soon be time to review documents and then announce,” Romano said.
“English and German clubs wanted him before this agreement, so it looks like a good move by Liverpool to secure his future. In terms of what happens next, whether he gets a chance in the first-team or goes out on loan, this is not something clear now, we will see next season with new manager and with new director what they decide to do in terms of loan and similar. Now the mission was his contract extension; and it’s done.”
