With Sky Sports reporting that Wolverhampton Wanderers are lining up a loan move for Jack Robinson, it looks like the nineteen-year-old may have a revived opportunity for regular first team football this season.
Robinson has spent the current campaign at the fringes of the first team, having started only five matches since August, and with all five of those games occurring outside of the Premier League. Despite Liverpool having little in the way of significant depth at left back, Robinson has been unable to stake a claim for the position during injury layoffs by more senior members of the squad, coming below even Stewart Downing in the pecking order.
One league below, Wolves currently languish a single point above the relegation zone in the Championship, and are winless in ten straight matches across all competitions. Kaspars Gorkšs of Reading has also joined the club on loan as part of their attempt to bolster their defensive line until the end of the season.
Robinson may not be the defender many fans wish Liverpool would send out on loan to gain valuable first-team experience, but it’s hard to argue against him earning regular playing time elsewhere at this stage of the season when it’s clear his chances at making the bench are increasingly remote.
