Cameron Brannagan could well be set for a loan spell with League One outfit Bolton Wanderers, according to reports in the Mirror (via ​Squawka).

The 20-year-old is currently surplus to requirements under manager Jurgen Klopp, who has recently admitted that the Reds would be willing to send Brannagan out on loan so he could gain some much needed game time, not to mention valuable experience. 


Last season saw the attacking midfielder break into the first team and having made his debut against Bordeaux in September 2015, he went on to make a further eight appearances throughout the campaign and is believed to have a bright future at Anfield. 

Brannagan was incredibly linked with the likes of Real Madrid last summer, but having signed a long term contract with the club, the Englishman has aspirations of one day becoming a regular feature in the Liverpool side. 

Sadly, a lack of playing time has slowed the midfielder's development and with the Reds seemingly set to challenge for the title year, it's unlikely that his chances to see some action will improve in the new year. 

With the January transfer window less than three weeks away, Brannagan is expected to go out on loan for the reminderof the season and it appears he could be making the short trip across Lancashire to join Bolton Wanderers. 

The League one side currently sit third in the table are in with a real shout of promotion back into the Championship, as they sit a point behind second-placed Sheffield United, who themselves are only three points off of leaders Scunthorpe. 

Brannagan would likely be given plenty of playing time up at the Macron stadium and he could be the key component that will help push the Trotters into one of the two automatic promotion spots.
