Liverpool recently sold Dominic Solanke to Bournemouth on a permanent deal.
With many expecting Solanke to leave Liverpool on loan, he instead departed the club permanently.
The 21-year-old has a lot of promise but has decided to leave Liverpool to further his career elsewhere.
The England under-21 international had not played a single minute of senior football this season and believes Bournemouth can offer him what Liverpool cannot.
But he needs to be careful that his career does not stagnate like Jerome Sinclair’s.
Sinclair was once in a similar position to Solanke after he left to pursue first-team chances at Watford.
The 22-year-old is still at Watford but his chances of making the cut are very slim.
Despite all the hype surrounding Sinclair, he has made just 12 appearances and scored one goal in two-and-a-half years at Watford.
After an unsuccessful loan spell at Birmingham City, he was sent to Sunderland last summer on a season-long loan to rediscover his touch in League One.
But even at a lower standard, the former England youth international has still struggled, scoring just twice in 18 appearances for the Black Cats.
Solanke needs to study Sinclair’s path and ensure he avoids making the same mistakes.
