Upon the expiry of his current Liverpool contract, 23-year-old Adam Lewis is likely to depart Merseyside in the summer.
Red’s youngster has enjoyed a loan spell away at League Two outfit Newport County but recently emerged back in Liverpool after enduring a season-ending injury.
According to Liverpool Echo, Lewis’ time at the English giants seems to be over as he enters the closing stages of his contract.
The report also claims that the defender is not expected to hold talks over a contract extension and will, therefore, depart the club for free.
Being part of the club’s youth set-up since the age of six, the Liverpool-born star will be a miss for the Anfield-based side.
Whilst club legend Steven Gerrard was at the top of the tree for the Red’s U18’s side, he showered the youngster with enormous praise.
Gerrard spoke to the club’s official website as he played such an important part in his team.
“If Adam can keep this consistency up, I don’t think he’ll be around this team for much longer. I want to keep him for as long as I can, but for me, he’s such a threat on the left side.
“Going forward, I haven’t seen anyone as good as him at that age, in terms of quality and what he can deliver in the final third.”
Liverpool currently have one of the world’s best ball deliverers on the left-hand side of their senior team defence, but Gerrard’s claim means Klopp would be in safe hands if news of his departure hadn’t arisen.
Despite the growing praise, he’s failed to cement himself as an important part in Liverpool’s future and instead has spent most of his contract out on loan at various clubs.
These clubs include Amiens, Plymouth Argyle, Livingston and Newport County, where his elite-level performances have not gone unnoticed.
It is hoped that Newport County will offer him a long-term deal there once his contract expires for the Merseysiders.
