Alisson scuppered Kelleher’s plans to leave Liverpool in Eredivisie loan switch, says Republic of Ireland boss Kenny

 The highly-rated Irish goalkeeper was due to head for the Netherlands in the summer window, but an untimely injury at Anfield forced him to stay put

Republic of Ireland boss Stephen Kenny has revealed that Caoimhin Kelleher was supposed to leave Liverpool on loan over the summer, only for an untimely injury picked up by Alisson to scupper those plans.

A highly-rated product of the Reds’ academy system has seen just four first-team outings to date. That is because his path is blocked by Alisson, a man many consider to be the finest goalkeeper on the planet, and experienced back-up Adrian.

With minutes hard to come by, Liverpool had planned to send Kelleher to the Eredivisie in order to pick up valuable experience.
