Liverpool have reportedly ended their interest in signing Bristol City defender, Lloyd Kelly, despite a number of other Premier League sides chasing his signature.
Bristol City reporter, Gregor MacGregor revealed on the Robins On The Wire podcast that Liverpool aren’t planning on making any official bids for the in-demand defender.
It’s no surprise to see Kelly attracting interest from Premier League clubs this month as the youngster has been hugely impressive for Lee Johnson’s side this season.
It has previously been reported that Kelly was attracting interest from Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester United and Tottenham in this month’s transfer window.
Johnson revealed that Liverpool were one of the clubs interested in pursuing a deal to sign the young full-back this month, but this latest news will be a huge boost for the Robins.
At the age of 20, Kelly certainly has age on his side, and Bristol City supporters will be hoping that he can play a starring role for them for years to come.
It’s not likely to be the last we hear of speculation linking the youngster with a move away from Ashton Gate, but he’s likely to remain grounded with some important fixtures coming up for Bristol City.
I’m surprised to see them not making an official bid for Kelly.
He is one of the most exciting talents in the Championship and he certainly has a big future ahead of him.
Liverpool could live to regret this decision as he could be worth a considerable amount more in years to come when he develops in the professional game.
