Liverpool prepare for exit of 28-year-old after Klopp decision, player wants loan
By Alex Taylor
Adam Bogdan has revealed that he wants to spend next season on loan after slipping down the Liverpool pecking order.
Bogdan was in goal for the Merseysiders’ final Premier League match of 2015-16 but has slipped to fourth in the keeper roster following the signing of Loris Karius.
He was axed from Liverpool’s Europa League squad in January in favour of rookie Danny Ward, who was recalled from a loan spell at Aberdeen.
Ward was subsequently the substitute goalkeeper in the matchday squad, while long-standing No1 Simon Mignolet is set to be challenged by Karius next season.
Hungary international Bogdan, 28, admits he is surplus to requirements at Anfield after Klopp decided he needed summer reinforcements in goal.

“The goal is to get loaned out,” he told Goal Hungary. “I could stay but I would need incredible luck or a lot of injuries to climb the ladder.”
“I can get out of this situation by performing well somewhere else. Then if life allows it, return to Liverpool. I need to go to prove my worth”.
It is believed that Bogdan’s future depends on the movements of fellow Red’s keeper Danny Ward this summer as the club will look to keep one of the two keepers at the club, and offload the other.
The report says that Ward is likely to be offered a contract extension at Anfield as Bogdan’s future remains unclear.
