Hearts want to sign Liverpool midfielder and Wales international Ben Woodburn on loan (Goal).

The Scottish Premiership side have already bolstered that area with Beni Baningime while Australian midfielder Cameron Devlin is also due to arrive this month. An attacking midfielder, Woodburn has worked his way back into the Liverpool squad at English Premier League level, named as a substitute in Friday’s win over Norwich City.

Aged 21, Woodburn is the youngest goalscorer in Liverpool history but he has been unable to establish himself in the first-team at Anfield. He has spent time out on loan at Sheffield United, Oxford United and Blackpool.

Woodburn was just 17 years and 45 days old in November 2016 when he became the youngest player to score in a competitive game for the club, netting in a League Cup win over Leeds United at Anfield.

Robbie Neilson’s side face Aberdeen at Tynecastle this Sunday in Premiership action. Woodburn is also wanted by teams in Croatia and Denmark.
