Paul Joyce has said that Jurgen Klopp plans on keeping Curtis Jones as part of his Liverpool squad next year.
The 18-year-old has broken into the senior group so far this campaign, appearing in all but one of the side’s League Cup and FA Cup matches, whilst also receiving his first minutes of Premier League action as well. Not only that, he has bagged two strikes, with one coming against city rivals Everton.
It looks like he will find himself on the pitch even more next term as well, if Joyce’s article for The Times is anything to go by. He has said that he will stay at Anfield next season, and will not be going out on loan.
That is a decision that makes perfect sense. He has already taken advantage of the chances he has been given this season, whilst he has 14 strikes in 19 matches for the club’s youth sides this time out as well. He really is one for the future, and he is already in a position to provide back-up for the main stars. As Klopp looks to build for the future, Jones can be an important component.
