Kelly hopes versatility will help Liverpool cause

Liverpool defender Martin Kelly is happy to play anywhere if he gets him a senior chance.

Kelly's desire for senior football could be aided by a versatility which was illustrated on loan at Huddersfield Town last term.

"At the moment I don't know which is my best position," the 19-year-old told liverpoolfc.tv. "I'll play anywhere across the back four. When I went to Huddersfield I played at left-back for the first three games and it didn't seem any different to right-back. I don't mind where I play.

"I've been working hard on the tactical side of my game, which helps. That's coming along and I can't thank the coaching staff enough for what they've done to bring me on as a player.

"The defenders here are top-class players but I'll be trying my hardest in training.

"They (Jamie Carragher, Daniel Agger and Martin Skrtel) have been great with me, giving me advice and telling me how to put anything I'm doing wrong right.

"Training with them every day is fantastic - I can't wait to get out there with them and then I don't want the training sessions to finish."
