Liverpool defender Conor Masterson urged to leave

Liverpool defender Conor Masterson has been urged to leave on-loan next season.

Republic of Ireland U21 coach Stephen Kelly has told Masterson to consider a short-term exit from Liverpool.

He's yet to make an appearance for Liverpool and Kelly wants to see him playing first-team football.

“Conor is a bit of a crossroads," he said. “He is 20 now and needs to play games.

“Conor could look at his central defensive partner from our team, Darragh O'Shea, going to Exeter on loan.

“He's developed by getting 30 games and is a year younger than Conor."
