Liverpool are keeping tabs on Bristol City defender Lloyd Kelly, according to ClubCall.

The 20-year-old left-back has enjoyed a consistent run in the Robins’ starting eleven this season in the Championship and is impressing.

Liverpool scouts were apparently present at Bristol City’s 2-0 defeat to Leeds United last month as they seek out young talent from the second tier.

The Reds are in the hunt for left-back with Alberto Moreno expected to leave them when his contract expires. Therefore, they could move for Kelly as back-up and competition for Andy Robertson in the long-term.

Kelly joined Bristol City in 2011 and rose through the youth ranks at Ashton Gate. He was key player for their youth sides before he was handed his senior debut in a League Cup against Plymouth Argyle in August 2017.

He played 14 games in all competitions for Lee Johnson’s side last season and has made the left-back spot his own in this campaign following Joe Bryan’s departure to Premier League side Fulham over the summer, playing 18 times.

Kelly is certainly one for the future and one who Bristol City will want to keep hold of for as long as possible. The fact Liverpool are being linked with him is credit to the work he has been doing for them this season.

The Robins are currently 14th in the Championship and are eight points off the Play-Offs. Next up for Johnson’s men is a tricky trip to face Birmingham City at St Andrews on Saturday.
