The youngster spent last season on loan in the Championship at Preston North End and was a hit with the Lancashire club.

He has said, as per the club’s official website: “I had a little chat with him (Jurgen Klopp) about the loan last season. But it’s too early for that. With so many players, everyone is trying their best to impress and of course to get fit. For me now at the moment, it’s really to enjoy.

“It’s a great experience to be here. It’s a great experience to be back training with the guys as well, of course the level is outstanding. I’ve missed it. For me personally now, it’s just try to get back and impress everyone and we’ll see what happens.”
