    • Only amazed they never took the plunge on Janet Jazz Jazz Ham.
    • The source is in bold, 90min.com   Liverpool are reportedly in pole position to sign Coventry City youngster Sam McCallum.   McCallum has been linked with a host of clubs as a result of his good performances for the Sky Blues this season.
      Premier League quartet Leicester City, Aston Villa, Chelsea and Manchester City have all been linked with a move for the 19-year-old.   He has impressed this season, making 18 appearances in all competitions for Mark Robins' seventh-placed side in League One as they vie for a play-off place.
      But website 90min.com report that Jurgen Klopp's Reds are at the front of the queue to land the left-back, who they will sign and then send back to Coventry on loan.   The report adds that Klopp's side see him as the ideal backup for Andy Robertson, with the 25-year-old one of the top full-backs in the world.
      It is said he could end up becoming the Scotland international's long-term replacement.   McCallum, a Jamie Vardy academy graduate, began his career in non-league at Kent-based side Herne Bay before moving to the Sky Blues in August last year.     The original article on 90min.com...   Liverpool are set win the race to sign young Coventry City left-back Sam McCallum ahead of a number of Premier League rivals.   The 19-year-old has established himself as a core part of Coventry's side this season. In his 12 League One appearances since the start of the campaign, he has proven to be one of the most exciting talents outside of the top flight.   A number of Premier League sides have monitored McCallum this season, but 90min has learned that Liverpool are set to win the race to sign him, before allowing him to spend the remainder of the season on loan with Coventry.   Manchester City, Chelsea and Leicester City are just three of 20 sides who have sent scouts to watch the teenager this season, but Liverpool's interest has trumped them all.   Leicester may have felt that they had an advantage in the race to sign him, given McCallum is a graduate of striker Jamie Vardy's V9 Academy, but Liverpool have moved ahead of them and opened talks with the player.   The Reds are not blessed with much depth at left-back, with Andy Robertson their only senior option in the position, but McCallum is seen as a viable backup for the Scot and he could very well become the long-term successor to Robertson.
      He is predominantly a left-back, but is also comfortable further up the field as more of a wing-back and he has even played on the right-side of Coventry's defence this season, with his versatility working in his favour in the eyes of scouts.   McCallum only joined Coventry from non-league side Herne Bay in August 2018, but his development has impressed many scouts in the top flight and he is now close to sealing a dream move to one of England's biggest sides.   McCallum only joined Coventry from non-league Herne Bay in August 2018, but now he is close to landing a dream move to one of the Premier League’s giants.
    • From the Guardian comments on the match report     
    • Is he getting loaned back to them or joining up with our U23s/U19s? We still have Larouci at the academy, but I think I read somewhere that he is more of a winger than a full back.
