Championship trio Hull City, Brentford and Blackburn Rovers have all made enquiries about the availability of Liverpool winger Ben Woodburn, according to Goal.com.

The 19-year-old spent the first half of this season on loan at second tier side Sheffield United but has now returned to Liverpool after struggling for game time at Bramall Lane. He made just seven appearances in the league for Chris Wilder’s side.

Liverpool are now weighing up a decision on what to do with Woodburn now. They will not be short of loan offers with the likes of Hull, Brentford and Blackburn looking to pounce.

Woodburn joined Liverpool in 2007 and rose through the youth ranks at Anfield. He was a key player for their youth sides before getting his debut for the senior side in November 2016 in a  Premier League fixture against Sunderland.

He then became Liverpool’s youngest-ever goal scorer when he came off the bench to bag the winner against Leeds United an EFL Cup win in front of the Kop.

Woodburn has since played ten more times for the Reds and has also become a Wales international with eight caps to his name so far.

The promise is there to see for Woodburn but he needs to playing every week if he is out on loan. Sheffield United turned out to be the wrong move for him but it will be a learning curve for the youngster. It will be interesting to see what happens to him in this transfer window.
