Liverpool increase loans to 11 with 19-year-old set to join Blackburn

Liverpool youngster Tyler Morton is set to join Blackburn Rovers on loan before the new season.

The Reds want the midfielder to gain some big experience after the breakthrough last season, reports Neil Jones, and he is sure to benefit the youngster who has shown enough talent to play for Jurgen Klopp’s side in the future.

Morton made his competitive debut for Liverpool’s first team as a second-half substitute in September 2021 in the UEFA Cup match against Norwich City. The 19-year-old made nine appearances under Klopp last season, including Champions League debuts against Milan and Porto, while playing against Arsenal and Tottenham in the Premier League.

Liverpool have been busy in the loan market this summer with 10 deals already agreed to for those in and around the academy, and Morton now looks set to make 11.

It looked like there could be more opportunities for the 19-year-old this season, especially after Klopp stated that the player would be given a chance in his favorite position in eighth, but the club decided it was best for him to do so. Gain some experience with the first team in the tournament.
