Report: Championship sides want Liverpool’s Sepp van den Berg on loan

Liverpool look set to loan Sepp van den Berg out for the second-half of the season, with Goal reporting that a number of Championship sides have expressed an interest in the 19-year-old.

The Dutchman is yet to play for the first-team this season. The closest he came to featuring came in the Carabao Cup tie with Lincoln City, but he did not get off the bench that night.

His absence is particularly noteworthy given the problems Liverpool have had to deal with at centre-back during this campaign.

So it should come as no surprise that the Reds are considering loaning the £1.3 million teenager out this month (fee reported by BBC Sport).

Goal reports that several second tier sides have expressed an interest. So it looks as though van den Berg is going to get the chance to impress at a good level.


TBR View: van den Berg should look at Rhys Williams as inspiration

It may have disappointed van den Berg to play no part this season. However, he can take plenty of encouragement from Rhys Williams should he head out on loan.

Williams spent last season playing in National League North. He has since come back and made his debut in both the Premier League and Champions League.

Van den Berg looks set to play at a much higher level should he leave. So he should face an easier task as he looks to prove himself to Jurgen Klopp ahead of his return to Anfield in the summer.
