    Liverpool blow: Part of the Reds’ January transfer plans revealed

    Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp do not have plans to move for a new goalkeeper in the January transfer window, the Liverpool Echo understand.

    The Reds had been linked with a number of shot-stoppers including Stoke’s Jack Butland and Roma’s Alisson, however, neither move is excepted to take place this month.

    The German boss is believed to be happy with both his current options Simon Mignolet and Loris Karius who are expected to battle it out for the number one spot at Anfield until May.

    Karius for the rest of the season…

    Klopp is happy to see Liverpool goalkeeping duo Mignolet and Karius remain as his main two options, allowing them to share the duty over the rest of the season.

    The Belgian appears to be Klopp’s number one choice to play in goal for Premier League matches, whilst he has opted for Karius in the Champions League.

    The German keeper has made just ten appearances for the Meyerside club, whilst Mingolet has been given the nod on 21 occasions.

    Over the course of the season, the pair have both received criticism for their performances, especially Mignolet, leading to suggestions that they may be replaced.

    This now no longer appears to be the case, according to the Echo.

    Danny Ward decision

    It is understood that third choice goalkeeper Danny Ward is unhappy with his current situation at the club.

    The Welshman has featured just once for Liverpool this season, doing so in a 2-0 defeat in the third round of the EFL Cup at the hands of Leicester City.

    Klopp must now decide as to whether he will allow the 24-year-old to leave the club this month on loan for the remainder of the season, in search of greater playing time.

    Last season, Ward played a big part in helping Huddersfield Town secure promotion into the Premier League making 46 appearances in total for the Terriers.
