One of Jurgen Klopp's 'next boys' Yan Dhanda might start to regret summer exit

In the summer, talented Liverpool youngster Yan Dhanda left the club. It was actually a blow for Liverpool. As reported by Wales Online, Liverpool wanted to keep Dhanda. The playmaker was highly-rated by Jurgen Klopp who dubbed him one of the ‘next boys’ to make it at Liverpool.

However, the talented midfielder decided he wanted to move on and joined Swansea City on a free transfer.

The former West Brom talent started life with a bang in south Wales. After impressing in pre-season he was thrown on late into the club’s opening game of the season against Sheffield United. He immediately became a fan favourite by scoring the winning goal.

It had Liverpool fans wondering if they had just lost a huge talent.

However, since then, things have not been so straightforward.

Dhanda has played just twice more in the Championship. After being a regular on the bench up until the end of September he has featured in the matchday squad just one more time since.

Instead, Dhanda has been with the Swansea under-23s. Now, the Swans did sign Dhanda as a potential future star. However, he will no doubt not have left Liverpool to then sit in the under-23s elsewhere.

Liverpool fans will wish him all the best. But Dhanda must be wondering, at the moment, if he would have been better off sticking around at Liverpool.
