Adam Morgan Completes Rotherham Loan Move

Jared Wickerham

With Liverpool's senior attacking depth improved, youngster Adam Morgan has been freed up to complete a loan move to League Two side Rotherham United.

A day after officially completing the signing of Daniel Sturridge, Liverpool have today made their second move of January—and it was one nobody saw coming. While most eyes were focused on West Ham in expectation of Joe Cole completing his move back to London, Liverpool quickly completed a deal to send youngster Adam Morgan out on loan.

Morgan joins League Two side Rotherham United for the remainder of the season, as with Daniel Sturridge's arrival now complete and Fabio Borini's return to fitness growing ever nearer it meant the young striker remaining at the club as an emergency option was no longer necessary.

Instead, he will now be expected to see regular first team action, albeit for a lower league side, and that action could come as soon as Saturday when Rotherham face Aldershot in the FA Cup.

So far this season, the 18-year-old striker had started twice in the Europa League. He also came off the bench once in Europe and was an unused substitute against West Ham in the Premier League.

With Morgan now at Rotherham in search of first team minutes, the move should also free up more playing time with the U21s for Samed Yesil and Michael Ngoo.

Correction: Following confirmation from the club, Morgan's loan move has in fact been confirmed as a short term, month-long deal and not one that lasts the rest of the season as was originally believed. (HT: Jake Singer)
