Luis Longstaff has joined Queen’s Park from English Premier League club Liverpool for the rest of the 21/22 League One season.
The versatile attacking option has made one senior appearance for Liverpool but it has now been confirmed that he will head to Scotland for experience. He joins the side which Andy Robertson started his journey from part-time player to Liverpool’s number one left-back and Scotland captaincy at.
An Anfield statement reads: “Academy midfielder Luis Longstaff has completed a season-long loan move to Queen’s Park. The 20-year-old links up with the Scottish side, who top the League One table after five matches so far, for the remainder of 2021-22.
“Since joining Liverpool in 2015, Longstaff has been part of the 2019 FA Youth Cup-winning squad and made his first-team debut in the Carabao Cup tie at Aston Villa in December of the same year. He committed his future to the Reds by signing a new contract last June and will now look to build up further senior experience at Queen’s Park.”
Queen’s Park add: “Queen’s Park FC have today announced the loan signing from Liverpool of 20-year-old forward Luis Longstaff. Luis is a product of the Newcastle United Academy and joined Liverpool in 2015.
“Capped by England U16s and U17s, Luis has played midfield, winger and centre forward roles. Last season he made 23 appearances for Liverpool U23s, scoring 4 goals.”
