Liverpool have told 19-year old striker Adam Morgan that he can leave the club on a free transfer, according to the Daily Mail.
The young striker was tipped by some for first-team action after breaking into the Liverpool first team on the club’s preseason tour of the USA in the summer of 2012. With Robbie Fowler praising Morgan after watching him play for the Liverpool Under-21’s. But it now seems as though Morgan has not made the cut and can leave Liverpool in a bid to further his career elsewhere. The report claims that Blackburn Rovers may be interested in signing Morgan.
Morgan never featured for the Reds in the Premier League and only managed to make a couple of appearances for the side in the Europa League. But Morgan was prolific for Liverpool’s reserve and youth teams but couldn’t quite make the step up like his fellow starlets Raheem Sterling, Suso, Andre Wisdom and Jordan Ibe who have all been given a chance by Brendan Rodgers.
Let us hope that we have not let another youngster go too early like we did with Tom Ince who has no gone on to become a very good winger at Blackpool. I guess it is always tricky with these youngsters as you never know how good they really can become if they are not given a chance in the first team. Morgan was sent out on loan to Rotherham United earlier this year but that did not achieve much. Maybe he should have been given another chance to go out on loan before we let him go?
