Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp could allow goalkeeper Caoimhin Kelleher to leave the club in 2020 on loan, according to the Daily Star.
Kelleher, 21, had been providing cover for Adrian while first-choice goalkeeper Alisson was recovering from the injury he sustained at the start of the season.
With the Brazilian back to full fitness, Kelleher now finds himself third in the pecking order, leaving Klopp open to letting him leave the club on a short-term basis.
The news comes after it was revealed that Klopp would also be willing to let Rhian Brewster leave on loan in January.
Both Kelleher and Brewster have featured twice for the first team this season, lining up in the Carabao Cup wins over MK Dons and Arsenal.
Is Dejan Lovren underrated?
They were key in the penalty shootout win over the Gunners; Brewster converted his spot-kick before Kelleher denied Dani Ceballos to ensure Liverpool advanced to the quarter-finals of the competition.
The European champions face a hectic fixture schedule in December, as they compete in four different competitions, including the Club World Cup in Qatar.
Once they reach the new year, the congestion eases on the squad.
With Alisson fit again, it is not surprising that Klopp is willing to let Kelleher leave on loan.
The Brazil international is Liverpool’s undisputed No.1, while Adrian pretty much has that deputy role on lock for his UEFA Super Cup heroics against Chelsea alone.
Indeed, this seems to be the logical move here.
