McParland: Liverpool careful about placing players on-loan

Liverpool academy chief Frank McParland says he and manager Brendan Rodgers are careful about placing their young players on-loan.

McParland wrote in the Daily Mail: "It's no use a club putting that time and effort into a prospect if they go to a club where they don't play the style you want. It could be detrimental to the player's progress.

"The manager, Brendan Rodgers, is very keen on making sure we are sending players to the right clubs. He and I will have a chat about their strengths and weaknesses and where may be the best options for them to continue their education and he always has the final say.

"We treat every player on their individual merits. For example, Krisztian Adorjan we have sent to Groningen in Holland but we wouldn't send Harry Wilson out on loan right now because he's not right physically."
