Liverpool will allow youngster Ben Woodburn to go out on loan again, with Hull City leading the chase for his signature before the window closes at the end of this week.
According to a report in the Sun, the Reds will allow the young striker to make a move away from Anfield in the hope he can get some game time under his belt and prove his worth in the second tier following a miserable spell spent with Sheffield United earlier in the campaign.
Woodburn failed to make an impression on Chris Wilder and the Blades, and ultimately returned to Liverpool mid-way through a spell which was meant to see him spend the entire season at Bramall Lane.

However, Nigel Adkins and Hull could offer the teenager a lifeline of sorts, with the Tigers reportedly leading the chase to land the Welshman as they look to continue their good form and make a run at the play-off places.
Woodburn shot to prominence as a 17-year-old, scoring at Anfield to affirm his status as one of the brightest prospects to come out of the club in recent times.
His form and spell in Sheffield did little to further his reputation though, but manager Jurgen Klopp appears to be fond of Woodburn, and a loan spell with Hull could well be the ideal second chance he needs.
Woodburn did nothing for Sheffield United but there’s clearly some talent there and a move to Hull might get the best out of him.
The Tigers are playing well, and unlike the Blades are not settled on a best XI and fighting for automatic promotion. This might well give Woodburn that little bit more opportunity to break into the first team.
