Brannagan is well known among Liverpool fans after making several appearances for the first team already, though he is yet to feature this season.
The young midfielder has been overshadowed by teammates Trent Alexander-Arnold, Ovie Ejaria and Kevin Stewart this season but he has continued to impress for the Liverpool reserves.
Brannagan made his first team debut in September 2015 during a 1-1 draw against Bordeaux in the Europa League and has gone on to make nine total appearances for the Reds, including eight under Jurgen Klopp.

He has since remained with Michael Beale’s under-23s side and has scored two goals in eight appearances as the reserve team have climbed to the top of the Premier League 2 table.
Brannagan last represented the first team in May 2016 during their 1-1 draw against West Brom in the final game of the season – his first Premier League appearance.
