Castaway Liverpool forward Ben Woodburn is set for another season away from Merseyside as a new loan move is announced.
The Wales international will spend the 2020/21 campaign in the Netherlands as he links up with Sparta Rotterdam, as reported by James Pearce. He will enjoy a one-year stint with the Eredivisie outfit before returning to Anfield for another career decision.
Does Ben Woodburn have a future at Liverpool?
Woodburn had a lot of promise at Liverpool but more recently he has slipped dramatically down Jurgen Klopp’s pecking order. The 20-year-old’s last appearance for the Reds was for the reserve squad last April, however, 2018 was the last time he represented the club’s first team.
Overall, Woodburn has made 11 senior appearances for Liverpool and has scored one goal (via Transfermarkt). He spent last season on loan with Oxford United, but unfortunately contributed to just 16 matches across all competitions, due to a foot injury.
Liverpool fans have had their say on this piece of business and not many aren’t keen. A lot feel that Woodburn should be being integrated into the team or sold on, as one supporter has replied saying ‘it’s not a good move for Liverpool’.

Again, it's not a good move for Liverpool. These players are constantly on loan, not improving and are almost impossible to sell for some reason.
You keep saying 'Good loan move'.
For goodness sake please call it what it is sometimes!

I hope he gains valuable experience and pushes on. However the path to the first team seems completely unreachable and not sure he’ll ever make the grade for the Premier league.

We’ve talked about loan moves and development for Ben Woodburn for many years now, it feels like he’s a veteran not a youngster!

Could be Rotterdam or anywhere, Liverpool or Rome. Except not Liverpool actually, definitely not Liverpool

Just hasn’t pushed on. It happens more than it doesn’t. Could be attitude, could just be he reached his limit of capability.
