Caoimhín Kelleher set for loan move

Cork's Caoimhín Kelleher could be heading out on loan in January.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp wants the former Ringmahon Rangers goalkeeper to get more first team football experience.

Kelleher is third choice in the Anfield pecking order behind Alisson Becker and Adrian.

The Liverpool Echo say that any move will be contingent on a guarantee of playing time for the Republic of Ireland under 21 international.

Preston North End are being linked with a move for Kelleher, and should the move come about Kelleher would find himself in some very familiar company.

North End have former Ringmahon players Alan Browne and Adam O'Reilly on their books, along with former Cork City striker Seani Maguire.

Kelleher is set to start for the Reds in next month's Carabao Cup quarter final with Aston Villa at Villa Park, due to the first team being in the semi final of the FIFA Club World Cup 24 hours later.
