Report: Liverpool target Burnley keeper Heaton

Liverpool's search for a reserve goalkeeper has taken them to Burnley as they eye a deal for Tom Heaton according to reports.

The former Man United junior has been a stalwart for the Clarets playing close to 200 games since joining them from Bristol City in 2013.

The 33 year-old has also represented England from U/16s through to senior level where he has won three caps.

Heaton missed much of the 2017/8 season with a shoulder injury and then last season was replaced by new signing Joe Hart for the first half of the campaign.

The clamour was high among the fanbase for the popular custodian to take back the No 1 shirt after Burnley's horror home display against Everton on Boxing Day which saw them three points from safety at the midway point of the season.

Heaton was soon reinstalled and his astute performances help guide Burnley out of troubled waters.

The Mirror reports that the veteran gloveman is entering the last year of his current deal, and Liverpool are looking to add his vast experience to the keeping ranks.

The Reds have mainly relied on Simon Mignolet during the pre-season with Alisson on international duty with Brazil for Copa America.

While veteran Andy Lonergan was drafted in for the tour of America.

Southampton's Alex McCarthy was linked with a move to the club a few weeks ago, but nothing has developed on that front. 

There have been differing reports whether Mignolet who is highly regarded within the club for his top class attitude, will remain for the current season.

Jurgen Klopp has often spoken about his wish for the Belgian to stay on, while Mignolet's agent said that he needs to start looking for first team opportunities.

So, it seems like this is another case of watch this space as we edge towards the transfer deadline.

Heston is a good goalie. He singlehandedly turned their season around last year.

You’re just happy because we’ve swapped from buying Southampton players to building the @viRdjil XI. Adama Traore incoming.

 Saw him make a great save last season, smothered the ball in a light embrace and finished with a satisfying drizzle!

Liverpool (c)FSG 2019 target Burnley keeper Heaton in game of Laser Tag. They all miss until Bobby Firmino, able to light up the entire area by flashing a smile, finishes the game with a no look shot in the prime target's arse.
