Liverpool had a busy transfer window last summer bringing in new members to join the first team but they also loaned out a lot of young players who were in need of minutes.
They sent out 17 players on temporary moves to aid their development but quite a few of those moves did not go to plan which meant that Liverpool had to recall several players back during the January transfer window.
The likes of James Balagizi. Billy Koumetio, Rhys Williams, Calvin Ramsay and Fabio Carvalho were all brought back due to not getting enough minutes whilst Owen Beck returned as cover for the injured Andy Robertson and Kostas Tsimikas.
Another player who returned was Nathaniel Phillips but his loan deal at Celtic was only a short-term deal so Liverpool knew that the 26-year-old would be on his way back.
They have recently announced that they have loaned another player out though who was recalled so they can attempt to have a positive campaign after a tough spell.
Calvin Ramsay has joined Bolton Wanderers on loan for the rest of the season
Scotland international Calvin Ramsay has joined League One side Bolton Wanderers for the rest of this campaign Liverpool have confirmed.
The full-back only made two appearances for Preston North End after he joined in the summer but he was recovering from knee surgery when he joined the club so therefore he missed the first 16 league games but even when he recovered he couldn’t force his way into Ryan Lowe’s plans hence why he was recalled.
Conor Bradley is the latest youngster to be performing at such a high level for Liverpool and the reason he has been trusted is because he excelled on loan at Bolton last season so Ramsay will be hoping to do the same thing.
Speaking to the Bolton media after signing Ramsay said: “I spoke to Conor and he said he loved it here, said it was a great club and all the lads were good.
“I got a bit of advice from him, although I didn’t really need to speak to him to be fair because
“I saw how well he had done and he’s playing at Liverpool now and probably going to be hard to get him out of the team the way he is going.”
The 20-year-old continued and said: “My last loan spell didn’t really work out but to come to a club like Bolton, challenging to get promotion this year, is a great club for me to be at and continue my development.
“Hopefully I get as many games as I can and I’m just really looking forward to it. It’s a great opportunity now to be here.
“Playing football is the main thing at any age, but especially when you’re younger and you’ve picked up a few injuries or whatever.
“You just need to get back out on the pitch and working as hard as you can in training to get game time and hopefully here I can go and show that and prove to everyone what I can do and how good I can be.”
Bolton are currently second in League One and are only two points off top spot with two games in hand so Ramsay will hope he can contribute to them going on to win the title with their next league game against Barnsley.
