Klopp named Woodburn in his first Premier League squad of the season against Norwich City last week.  He sees the 21-year-old – who is the youngest goalscorer in Liverpool history – as a potential part of his plans this season.

Woodburn trained with the Liverpool first-team this morning, but a loan move has been agreed until January. Hearts could keep the attacking midfielder until the end of the season if all parties are satisfied with the progress he is making in Gorgie. Woodburn’s Anfield deal expires ay the end of this season.

 

But Klopp will make the final decision on whether he goes or not and will hold crucial talks in order to decide the potentially Hearts-bound player’s future.
