Liverpool defender Jon Flanagan has agreed a loan move to Burnley, according to a report.

The Mirror claim that the young right-back has been given the green light to join the Clarets for this season under the tutelage of Sean Dyche.

Flanagan has fully recovered from the knee problems that sidelined him for 18 months, and even managed to land himself a new three-year contract in March that will keep him at Liverpool until 2019.

Despite managing a short revival from injury at the start of 2016, Flanagan was unable to force his way into the first team regularly. He made five Premier League appearances last season, including a start in the last game of the season against West Brom.

The versatile defender has made 50 appearances for the Reds since making his debut as a teenager, scoring one goal.

The 23-year-old is one of the Merseyside outfit’s most promising emerging talents alongside Divock Origi, Joe Gomez, and Emre Can.

Liverpool have been active in the transfer market so far, with Jurgen Klopp adding Sadio Mane, Joel Matip, Marko Grujic and Loris Karius to his squad.

In other Liverpool transfer news, striker Daniel Sturridge believes that Sadio Mane and Georginio Wijnaldum will have to perform straight away at Liverpool next season.
