Liverpool have omitted six players from their pre-season tour squad - with two expected to complete imminent departures.

Calvin Ramsay, Caoimhin Kelleher, Neco Williams, Ben Davies, Kaide Gordon and Owen Beck are not part of the 37-man group who have jetted off to the Far East.

The Reds play Manchester United in Bangkok on Tuesday (14.00) before facing Crystal Palace at Singapore’s national stadium on Friday (13.35).

Jurgen Klopp has already confirmed that Calvin Ramsay has suffered an injury in training. The right-back was purchased for £6.5 million from Aberdeen this summer.

Meanwhile, Williams is expected to complete a £17 million move to Nottingham Forest.


The right-back spent the second half of last season on loan at Fulham, helping them win the Championship title.

Williams is behind Trent Alexander-Arnold in the pecking order at Anfield.

The Wales international has made 33 appearances in total for Liverpool.

Beck is set for his first taste of senior football on loan. The left-back, who made two Carabao Cup outings last season, is closing in on a temporary switch to Portuguese side Famalicao, per The Athletic.

Kelleher and Gordon’s absences are both unexplained so far.

The pair are highly rated by Klopp, with Kelleher proving the hero in goal as Liverpool claimed the Carabao Cup last season.

Davies seemingly is surplus to requirements on Merseyside. He was signed in January 2020 amid a defensive crisis but has never played for the Reds.

The centre-back spent last season on loan at Sheffield United and recently been linked with Blackburn Rovers and Stoke City.

Summer signings Darwin Nunez and Fabio Carvalho have all made the trip to Asia alongside the likes of Mo Salah, Jordan Henderson and Virgil van Dijk.
