It hasn’t quite happened for Liam Miller at Liverpool.
The 21 year old Canadian moved to Anfield in 2019 but so far has just a solitary FA Cup appearance to his name. Comfortable upfront or out wide, he’s never looked anywhere near the first team.
He’s spent time on loan at Kilmarnock in the Scottish Premiership as well as Charlton Athletic in League One without ever catching the eye to a great extent. Which is why it’s not a huge shock he looks to be on his way to Swiss Super League side FC Basel.
The Liverpool Echo report that “the Canadian international forward is close to agreeing personal terms after a second seven-figure bid was accepted by Liverpool on Friday.
“Michael Edwards and Julian Ward had rejected previous permanent offers for Millar - opting instead to send him on-loan to Kilmarnock and Charlton - while there was Bundesliga interest last summer.”
It’s hard to really quibble with this move. He’s going to a reasonable standard of league and will be competing for league titles, which is surely more fun than playing for the smaller sides of England and Scotland. We’re sure there are no major hard feelings here, but this feels a natural time to part.
All the best in the future, Liam.
