Ben Woodburn on the Move to Sheffield United

Home » News » Ben Woodburn in Loan Move
L207391

Following our article 'Ben Woodburn Excels' last weekend, it has just been announced that Ben Woodburn is on the move in a season-long loan move to Sheffield United.

Ben travelled to Bramall Lane to finalise the temporary move and could make his debut in Saturday's opening Championship fixture against Swansea City.

Sheffield United beat off stiff competition from Aston Villa to secure his services. Both Liverpool and the player himself were impressed by Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder, who has vowed to give Woodburn the regular game-time he needs.

A loan offer from Wigan Athletic was rejected.

Jurgen Klopp sanctioned the move for Woodburn as he believes a season in the Championship would be better for his development than staying on the fringes of his first-team squad.

Speaking on securing the teenager, Wilder said: 'Ben is a great signing for us, he is an exciting player with undoubted quality.

He's been involved with Liverpool throughout their pre-season and I'm delighted they've trusted us with one of their outstanding young prospects, who is a full international as a teenager.

It's his first loan move and I'm sure it will be a great one for all parties. He makes goals and score goals with both feet, he can play in a couple of attacking positions and gives us flexibility at the top of the pitch'.

Klopp rates Woodburn highly and believes he has a big future at Anfield.

Speaking after last weekend's 4-1 win over Manchester United in Michigan, Klopp said: 'Ben Woodburn is 100% back for example. 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'.

Our CONGRATULATIONS to Ben.
