Liverpool midfielder Alberto wants to 'reconnect' at Deportivo La Coruna

Liverpool forgotten man Luis Alberto has sealed another loan move from Anfield to Deportivo La Coruna, where he is looking to 'reconnect' again with football.

The 22-year old signed for Liverpool in 2013 but has failed to make an impression on the first team under boss Brendan Rogers and his move to Deportivo is his latest loan after spending last season with Malaga.

Alberto told reporters: "I want to reconnect with the pitch, enjoy myself, give joy to the fans and return the faith of my coach.

"I spoke to the coach [Victor Sanchez] who knew me from Sevilla. He told me to come here and that I'd be very happy and feel like a player again at the level of two years ago."

Former Sevilla youngster Alberto scored two goals in 15 La Liga outings with Malaga last season.
