    Curtis Jones tipped to leave Anfield because Liverpool signed Thiago

    Curtis Jones soon will be pushing for a Liverpool exit with too many options now available in the Reds' midfield

    Lfc rumour

    Former England international Paul Merson and ex Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp believes 19-year-old Jones after coming out impressively in some Liverpool recent fixtures, would be thinking of getting regular football elsewhere if he struggles to get playtime under the Reds in the short run.

    Merson thinks Liverpool signing of Thiago Alcantara would make things worse for the fast rising young midfielder.

    "He is a very good player, but how long do you stay at Liverpool?" Merson said on Sky Sports.

    "I don't see him playing at the moment, I don’t see him getting in the team.

    “All of a sudden, Thiago comes in and he’s probably thinking, ‘I’m doing alright at the moment, I’m playing well’, but then Thiago comes in and you think, ‘Where does that leave me?’.


    "If push comes to shove, I think Thiago plays more forward in Jones’ position."

    Jones has been in the matchday squad for Liverpool's three opening Premier League games, coming off the bench in the opening match against Leeds.

    But Jamie Redknapp echoed Merson's assessment that Jones would unlikely find regular minutes at Anfield this season.

    “At 19 years of age, this is where he is going to get his games right now,” Redknapp said.

    “In terms of midfield players, he’s got all of the attributes, but there does come a time where you wanna play and be in the first-team.

    “In terms of midfield players, he’s got all of the attributes, but there does come a time where you wanna play and be in the first-team.

    “I mean this in the nicest possible way, but he’s a very lucky man because he’s got great senior players and role-models around him.

    “Every day, I bet it’s an education being around James Milner, Jordan Henderson, players that do everything right.

    "It's so easy for young players to get affected by all of the surroundings around you, but he will be training and learning the basics really well."
