Ryan Kent has emerged as another first team option with Jurgen Klopp rejecting the option of the 22 year-old going on loan for another season.
Kent has been a regular on the loan circuit in recent seasons having spells at Coventry, Barnsley, Freiburg, Bristol City and last year under the tutelage of Steven Gerrard at Rangers.
It was in Glasgow where he flourished, winning the Scotland PFA Young Player of the year as well as being in the Scottish PFA team of the year.
Naturally, Rangers were very keen to hang onto the winger for another season where he scored six goals from over 40 appearances for the club.
Leeds had also registered a interest, but the Mirror reports that with a number of Klopp's key attacking options having a busy off-season due to international duty, he is keen to keep him.
It is another sign that the manager is looking to build depth from within, and to reward some of the players who have done the hard yards in aiming to get their career off the ground at the senior level.
Kent will be on the plane to the USA for the Reds pre-season tour where he undoubtedly will get some opportunities to impress.
