The promising right-back earned rave reviews for his performances as Liverpool made an unexpected charge for the 2013/14 Premier League title, claiming a place on England’s stand-by list for the World Cup in Germany.
But his journey towards becoming an Anfield regular has been stifled by serious injury problems, keeping him sidelined for the last 18 months.
It appears the 23-year-old still has a future on Merseyside, but he’s been allowed to go out on loan to gain more first-team experience.
Flanagan has agreed a loan move to Burnley, who can offer him Premier League football for the coming season.
And according to The Daily Mail, the Liverpool-born youngster is now undergoing a medical ahead of his move to Turf Moor.
Flanagan has made 50 appearances across all competitions for the Reds, including 40 outings in the Premier League.
