LIVERPOOL’s England youth goalkeeper Luke Hewitson joins Hereford on loan.
Hewitson, 17, needs game time in the senior ranks – if boss Jurgen Klopp lets him go.
The Newcastle-born starlet signed his first professional contract with Liverpool last October, having joined from Sunderland at Under-15 level
And his progress since then has been impressive.
The U-19 international has worked his way up through the Reds’ age group teams.
But a temporary move to the sixth division would still be an important decision at such an age.
Hereford, National League North, are managed by their former centre-back Josh Gowling, 38, who is best known for his spells at Bournemouth and Kidderminster.
Interest in Hewitson comes as Liverpool and Manchester City are linked with Linfield’s Cole Brannigan, 16.
The Northern Ireland Under-16 international is also said to be on the radar of Chelsea and Leeds.
But Liverpool and Manchester United could be rocked in their pursuit of Jude Bellingham by a £100m bid from Chelsea.
