Liverpool open talks with keeper

Liverpool have opened talks with goalkeeper Caomhín Kelleher about a contract extension.

The Irish under-21 international still has 17 months left  on his current deal at Anfield, but now the club want to tie him down to a new long-term deal.

The 22-year old has supplanted Adrian as the number two keeper for Jurgen Klopp’s side this season, having made five appearances for the club between December and February – two in the Champions League, two in the Premier League, and the FA Cup defeat against Aston Villa.

Some of the club’s fans have also called for him to be handed the gloves on a more permanent basis after the high profile errors that first-choice Alisson has made in recent games. However, the 22-year old is sidelined just now having picked up a knock in training.

Kelleher could in line to make his debut for the full Irish team when they play their World Cup opening qualifying match against Serbia next month.
