Liverpool defender Corey Whelan has allowed joining Yeovil Town on loan, as per proper reporter.
ESPN FC and Football Insider reporter Pete O’Rourke announced on his individual Twitter account on Friday morn that the Merseyside team’s Under-23s captain will go out to the League Two strugglers for the second half of the term.
Whelan, 20, is yet to play for the Liverpool older side but is a vital part of the Under-23s and has started 40 Premier League 2 games for the teams.
The versatile defender, who can perform at right-back or centre-back, signed a new deal with the Merseysiders last month to continue his being at the team he joined as an Under-10s player.
Yeovil are set 20th in the League Two table and are secured in a struggle to avoid relegation to the non-league this term.
The defender is a footballer of great potential, played in Republic of Ireland Under-21 level and highly demanded enough to lead the high flying Liverpool Under-23s. The Merseysiders want their loanees to be playing regularly, which perhaps explains why Whelan is heading to a League 2 club at the wrong end of the table. He simply has more chance of playing every week.
