Tyler Morton, a 20-year-old midfielder who has grown up in a Liverpool uniform since he was a small boy and has worked his way up through the various categories, is one of the most promising of the youngsters, having had the opportunity to play in the Premier League and Champions League two seasons ago.
Last season, he decided to move to Blackburn on a one-year loan. He played 40 games in the Championship and was a mainstay in a team that was in a fierce battle for promotion. He has improved greatly and was expected to challenge for the first team this season, but while he was slowed by injury, James McConnell has impressed in pre-season.
With three new additions to the midfield and rumors of further reinforcements, he will not be available if he stays at Anfield. According to This is Anfield, several Championship clubs are interested. A loan move is once again becoming a reality.
No specific clubs have been named, and with the transfer deadline looming, it remains to be seen how far Morton will be able to find the ideal destination. If the manager appreciates Morton’s ability, and there is a reasonable rivalry between the two clubs, Blackburn, where he spent last season, may be one of the candidates.
Will the young midfielder be able to continue his rapid development after two straight years on loan?
