Report: Trio of Championship sides showing interest in taking Kaide Gordon on loan in January



Kaide Gordon could be on the move in January in a quest to get some valuable first-team experience according to a new report.


The 19 year-old has just returned to first team action this month playing 75 minutes against Union SG in the Europa League.


It was the culmination of a hellish 18 month period for the talented youngster who has had a series of musculoskeletal issues as he grows into his body.


While an undoubtedly frustrating period for Gordon, he has now come out the other side and as Jurgen Klopp mentioned a few weeks back.


“So we were really unlucky with some of our big, big prospects.


“We had that problem that they were a little bit too good already for the physical status, let me say it like that.


“So they were that good that we thought they could help us already and everybody went in the right direction, and then the body said ‘no, stop.


“And that happened to Kaide unfortunately two or three times. It was a really long time out.”



As he finds his feet in terms on a regular basis, there is a couple of paths that the club could choose to go down.


The first one is to keep him in the ranks and allow him to get up to speed with the U/21s and possibly making future appearances in the Europa League and FA Cup.


The other option is to go out on loan and as TeamTalk reported that Birmingham. Middlesbrough and high-flying Ipswich are all interested.


Birmingham who are managed by Wayne Rooney are said to be extremely keen as the former Everton and Man United striker gave Gordon his senior debut at Derby.


It is a added element to keep an eye on throughout January, but regardless what occurs, the great news is that Gordon is now fully fit and hopefully it is only upwards from here.

Good idea. No clue as to what he's like as a player but he's never looked like he's ready for the step up. I know very few players are burst onto the scene ones but he needs to start gaining more competitive experience against grown men.
