Liverpool youngster set to leave Anfield on loan.
Liverpool have confirmed U-23 captain Liam Millar has completed a loan move to Charlton Athletic for the remainder of the season.
The 21-year-old has left for The Valley after signing a new contract which will see him stay at Liverpool beyond 2022.
The Canadian international who made his one and only first-team appearance for Liverpool in a cup tie last February against Shrewsbury has been a constant performer for the u23s following his successful loan spell in Scotland. He was subsequently handed the armband by the new U23 manager Barry Lewtas.
Liam who is a number 9 by trade has played in the left-wing for the u-23s and has scored 5 goals and created 2 goals this season. His performances this season has led to him being nominated twice for the Premier League 2 Player of the Month award.
It was widely believed he would be loaned out this summer, with many clubs including Millwall, Sunderland, and Charlton interested in the youngster. But a move couldn’t be materialized and Millar stayed with the academy.
The youngster who has been capped eight times by Canada has finally earned his move to Charlton who are trying to achieve promotion from League 1. Manager Lee Bowyers has expressed his delight over the signing of Millar who he believes will give them the much-needed firepower in their attack.
Liam Millar in a recent interview with Goal described what it meant to play for Liverpool and talked about his dreams:
To be the first Canadian to play for Liverpool, it was a big thing, something I’ll never forget, If any generation is going to get us to a World Cup, it’s this one. We have a lot of really good players. We all want to reach a World Cup. For a Canada team to do that, it’s the dream.”
Liverpool are also expected to send the likes of Sepp Van Den berg, Abdi Sharif out on loan with Laser Larouci looks set to leave the club on a permanent transfer.
Liverpool have also made some additions to their academy teams as Morgan Boyes was recalled from loan and Calum Scanlone and Stefan Bajcetic came from Birmingham City and Celta Vigo respectively.
