Sergi Canos is seen as one of Liverpool's brightest youth talents, and since his move from La Masia to Melwood as a 16-year-old he's made significant strides as a footballer. The 18-year-old was sent out to Championship side Brentford on a short loan at the start of the season and has performed well enough there in a super sub role for the clubs to extend the deal to a full season loan.

One month ago, we wrote that Canos was eager to stay at Brentford to continue his development, and he seems pleased to have his wish granted.

Brentford manager Dean Smith is also happy to have Canos around for longer, according to the Echo.

"I have been really pleased with Sergi and he has been progressing really well. Even though he is only 18-years-old, he has quite an old head on young shoulders," said the manager. "He has impressed me so far. He wants to learn and he wants to get better. He is enjoying himself here and he gives us something that we haven't really got here in terms of his direct running and enthusiasm."

"It is encouraging to have a player like Sergi here for the rest of the season," he added.
