Liverpool forward Ben Woodburn will reportedly be made available to sign on loan in January, with Sunderland and Leeds United among those interested.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has reportedly made in-demand youngster Ben Woodburn available to take on loan during the January transfer window.

The 18-year-old, who became the Reds' youngest-ever goalscorer last year when netting against Leeds United in the EFL Cup, has so far been held back from leaving Merseyside on a temporary basis.

According to the Daily Mail, however, Klopp feels that the time is right for the Wales international to gain first-team experience elsewhere, with a number of clubs lining up loan offers.

Woodburn is expected to drop down to the Championship, with Sunderland - managed by ex-Wales boss Chris Coleman - considered the frontrunners to land his signature.

The same report suggests that the Liverpool academy product, restricted to one first-team outing this term, has also attracted interest from Leeds, Premier League side Huddersfield Town and Bundesliga outfit Hannover.
