Liverpool to send Calvin Ramsay on season-long loan to Preston

Calvin Ramsay only made two first team appearances in his first season with Liverpool (Picture: Getty Images) Liverpool defender Calvin Ramsay is set to join Preston North End on loan for the 2023/24 season. The 19-year-old moved to Anfield from Aberdeen last summer for a fee of £4.2m after winning the SFWA Young Player of the Year in 2022 for his impressive performances north of the border. Injuries have not helped his progress since moving to Liverpool and he has only made two first team appearances under Jurgen Klopp, one in the Champions League and another in the League Cup. The Scot is yet to get on the pitch in the Premier League and only made it onto the substitutes’ bench once in the top flight. To speed up his development, Ramsay is heading out on loan, with The Athletic reporting that he will join Championship side Preston for the upcoming campaign. Preston finished 12th in the second-tier this season under Ryan Lowe, bringing in the likes of Troy Parrott, Alvaro Fernandez, Tom Cannon and Liam Delap on loan from Premier League sides. Ramsay’s injuries have been a concern for Liverpool so far, with a back problem diagnosed shortly after his arrival and knee surgery in February. Jurgen Klopp sympathised with the Scot when he was ruled out for the rest of the season in February, but hoped that the worst was then behind him. ‘We cannot play catch-up all the time with him because he is a great talent, a real talent, who had the most unlucky start possible,’ said the Reds boss. ‘But in the end when he finishes his career at 36 or 37 or whatever, if he can say then, ‘The most difficult year of my career was the first’, or the second in his case maybe, that’s absolutely OK because all the others were better and we did the right things in the first two. So, that’s what we try to do now with him.’ Jamie Carragher shares only concern over new Liverpool signing Alexis Mac Allister Naby Keita confirms Werder Bremen move after underwhelming Liverpool stint For more stories like this, check our sport page.
