Liverpool had a busy transfer window last summer as they had a massive midfield rebuild but they also took advantage of the loan market as they sent out 17 players on temporary transfers to gain some game time.
However, that is the reason why they have also had quite a busy January window so far as they have made multiple decisions to recall players back to the club and cut short their loans.
The first player they decided to bring back was attacking midfielder Fabio Carvalho as he struggled to get consistent minutes at RB Leipzig with their sporting director stating he was not competitive enough.
He has since been loaned back out to Hull City joining Tyler Morton who is also on loan at the Championship club and on Calrvalho’s debut Morton scored an absolute screamer so he is one player who won’t be getting brought back due to a lack of minutes.
Rhys Williams was also recalled from Aberdeen in Scotland as he was barely getting any appearances whilst James Balagizi was also brought back to the club from Wigan Athletic.
Owen Beck was brought back, also from Scotland as he was at Dundee, for a totally different reason as Liverpool needed some cover at left-back due to the injuries to Kostas Tsimikas and Andy Robertson.
The only player who was scheduled to come back in January was Nat Phillips as his loan at Celtic was only a short-term deal.
Now the club are going to be bringing back another player in this winter window.
Preston manager Ryan Lowe confirms that Liverpool have recalled Calvin Ramsay
In his post match press conference Preston North End manager has revealed that Liverpool have cut short the loan of Calvin Ramsay.
The Scotland international joined the Championship side after one season at Liverpool to gain more minutes and aid his development however things have not gone to plan.
He was recovering from knee surgery when he joined the club so therefore he missed the first 16 league games which meant it was not a good start to the loan deal.
When he was fit he was involved but he only made two appearances for the club and even though he was not injured Lowe started to leave him out of the squad hence why he was happy for him to return to his parent club.
The 20-year-old was signed by Liverpool at the start of last season to give Trent Alexander-Arnold cover and even some competition but he featured very little in his first campaign under Jurgen Klopp.
He only made two appearances which were against Derby County in the Carabao Cup and Napoli in the Champions League as again he suffered with injury issues again with his knee.
Whether he will follow Carvalho’s path of going out on loan again remains to be seen as Klopp is short on numbers at the back especially with the recent injury to Trent Alexander-Arnold.
However he has used Conor Bradley in the last two games and he earned a man of the match award against Fulham so Ramsay may benefit more from getting game time at another club for the remainder of the campaign.
