Cameron Brannagan Contract Dispute With Liverpool Has Championship Clubs Plotting Cut-Price Move

Pic: GettyPic: GettyLiverpool starlet Cameron Brannagan is likely to leave the club this summer after being left out of the squad to play in the Premier League Asia Trophy.

The young midfielder, who was watched by Real Madrid and Barcelona as a teenager, spent last season on loan at Fleetwood Town and was expecting to go on loan to a Championship club this term.

Liverpool, however, won’t allow Brannagan to go on loan without signing a new contract, given the playmaker has just 11 months remaining on his current deal.

Brannagan won’t sign without assurances over his pathway to the first team and clubs from the Premier League and Championship are ready to pounce on a potential bargain deal.

Stoke City, Hull City and Derby County are keeping tabs on the set-piece specialist.
