As we discussed yesterday, Liverpool's new-found depth at fullback made a move away for Jack Robinson sensible, and today the club confirm that they've sold the 20-year-old to QPR, who had been linked with the fullback for the past week or so. The London club will immediately loan Robinson to Championship side Huddersfield Town; he'll spend the rest of the season there before returning to QPR, who by that point could very well find themselves back in the Championship.
For his part, Robinson sounds optimistic about the impact the move will have on his career:
"It was an easy decision for me to come here for a new challenge. Hopefully I can do well here and establish myself as a Premier League player in the future. The loan spell at Huddersfield will no doubt serve me well for my future at QPR - I definitely need another season of games under my belt. I'm relishing the opportunity to go there and play, before I come back here and hopefully show what I'm capable of."
In the end maybe not the ideal move, as he'll find himself in the second tier yet again with no promise of Premier League action, but at least a deal that sees him likely guaranteed first-team minutes across the course of a season. Easy to forget how young he is given how long he's been around the senior squad at Liverpool, and there's plenty of time left for him to come good on the promise he has shown over the course of the past few years.
Good luck to him at Huddersfield, QPR, and beyond.
