Woodburn to join Sheffield Utd on loan from Liverpool
The youngster is wanted by the Championship club, who are set to replace David Brooks with the 18-year-old
Ben Woodburn is set to join Sheffield United on loan from Liverpool before the start of the Championship season.
Liverpool were not keen on allowing Woodburn to leave for Villa, however, with Jack Grealish still on their books, despite interest from Tottenham, and likely to play ahead of the 18-year-old.
Sheffield United want Woodburn to replace David Brooks, who has joined Bournemouth for a £10 million ($13m) fee.
Woodburn was left out of Liverpool’s training camp in Evian this week due to the possibility of a move.
“How it is with young boys, from time to time the improvement doesn’t go day by day, but he has played such a good pre-season.”
Sheyi Ojo may join Woodburn in leaving the club, either in a permanent transfer or on loan, with Middlesbrough interested in securing his services, while Lazar Markovic would also be allowed to leave.
