Liverpool U23 coach Lewtas hints at Woodburn sale

Liverpool U23 coach Barry Lewtas admits he's unsure what management have planned for Ben Woodburn.

Lewtas hinted Woodburn could be on the move this summer after starring in their 2-2 draw with Leicester City.

"The last time [playing for Liverpool U23s in Kirkby]? I wouldn't know," Lewtas said of Woodburn.

"But we are low on numbers so I have him pencilled in for next Monday [when Liverpool U23s face Leicester again] definitely!

"Ben has a lot of experience - he's one of the more experienced in the group - but he is still a very young boy.

"But what he does offer us is the surety in the way that we press, and he knows when to keep the ball, which is important when you play with 10 men.

"[Transfer decisions] are not my calls. Ben spent the first half of the season out on loan at Blackpool and he has been with the first team training as well, so we will just see where that one lines up."
