Liverpool seal defender deal as Klopp’s overhaul continues

Liverpool have agreed a deal with Premier League newcomers Burnley that will see Jon Flanagan move to the club on loan this summer, according to the Sunday People.

The 23-year old has recently returned from a nightmare spell out injured for the past two seasons and was handed a new deal at Anfield.

Still, Jurgen Klopp is believed to think he is best suited to continuing his comeback elsewhere and has afforded him a move to the Clarets.

While they are concerned over the extent of his injuries, top brass with the Reds reportedly remain hopeful the England international can develop into a future first-team star.

It represents somewhat of a coup for Sean Dyche at Turf Moor, with the Anfield academy graduate emerging as one of their best players during Brendan Rodgers’ barnstorming second season, where the club finished second.

He was capped at international level and has made 50 appearance for his boyhood charge, looking to get his career back on track in Lancashire.
