Liverpool academy director Frank McParland has expressed excitement over the potential return of former Reds trainee Tom Ince.
The Blackpool wideman, who has scored 13 goals in 26 Championship appearances this season, has been strongly linked with a January move back to Anfield.
And, whilst McParland remained coy over whether the 20-year-old is a target for Brendan Rodgers, he had kind words for the winger.
“The first team is not really my domain and there’s a lot of paper talk on so many players,” he told Goal.com.
“I don’t know whether the first team are interested in Tom Ince or not but he is a good player. He did great when he was here, he’s a really good kid and we wish him well wherever he’s going to be.”
Goal.com exclusively revealed that Liverpool youngster Michael Ngoo is set for a loan spell with Hearts, while the agent of Jack Butland feels that his current club Birmingham are pricing the Reds out of a move for the goalkeeper.
