Caoimhin Kelleher to leave...The former US goalie is concerned about the position of the Irish GK Transfers

Irish goalkeeper Caoimhín Kelleher , who protected the goalmouth and performed outstandingly during the period Brazilian goalkeeper Alisson Becker was out injured, made 26 appearances throughout the Premier League, Europa League, Carabao Cup and FA Cup.

However, when the team’s No.1 goalkeeper returned from injury, he was forced to relinquish his place as guardian and reverted to the bench. His position as reserve goalkeeper has not changed, and unless the Brazilian goalkeeper is very out of form, it is difficult to see him in the starting line-up.

Being treated as a reserve goalkeeper is a painful reality for players who want to play every week. Lamenting the position of the 25-year-old goalkeeper, who received offers from several Premier League clubs last year and Nottingham Forest this winter, was former US goalkeeper Kasey Keller, who played for Tottenham and others during his playing days.

He revealed his own thoughts that the Irish goalkeeper would be leaving Liverpool, drawing on his own circumstances as a player.

“I’d have to play. I’d be leaving, for sure. I had that at Spurs. Spurs had made a decision at board level that they wanted to be young and British and I was neither and so yeah, we had a lot of conversations and I had the opportunity to go to ‘Gladbach and play,”


He is not a young man in terms of age, being in his mid-20s. If he stays at Liverpool, he could spend the rest of his life as a reserve, and as a player he will want to come out.

However, it is rare to find a second goalkeeper who is so reliable, and letting him go as a club is a choice you don’t want to make if you can help it. The player is said to be open to a transfer for more than 20 million, so will he get his long-rumoured move…?
