English Premier League side Liverpool have loaned out defender Connor Randall to Rochdale on a 4-month deal.
The Merseyside club has loaned out 22-year-old defender Connor Randall to Rochdale, who play in the League One, the third tier league in England on a 4-month deal. The former England U-17 defender is a full-back, who primarily plies his trade on the left flank as a left-back, but also can play as a right-back.
Connor Randall has made 3 appearances for Liverpool. The young defender has also played for Shrewsbury Town, who also play in the third tier in England. Randall he made just one appearance. Liverpool loaned out Randall to Hearts of Midlothian in 2017. He made 24 appearances for the Scottish outfit during the 2017-18 season.
“When I heard about the move I was keen to come and get it done. Hopefully, while I’m here I can impress and get as much game time as possible,” said Randall about his loan move to Rochdale. He’ll be looking to impress on and all at Rochdale.
Good luck, Connor. ?https://t.co/VMULE10UJS

Randall has been with the Academy since he was 6-years old. He grew and developed as a professional player from Liverpool’s academy. Earlier, Randall was the captain of their U-18 squad. Randall can go forward through the flanks and deliver crosses for attackers. He is also known for his ability to burst into the opposition penalty area and create chaos for the opponents. He will look to earn regular playing time at Rochdale. If he manages to impress Liverpool with his performances for Rochdale, a first-team call won’t be a dream for this local lad.
Last season, Randall plied his trade for Hearts of Midlothian who play in the Scottish top-tier. There is no denying that the player would have earned much-needed experience while playing for Hearts. The presence of experienced International like Aaron Hughes would have further helped learn the young defender.
At Rochdale, he’ll further look to expand his experience and learn more before making it to the senior team of Liverpool. There is no doubt that Randall has it in him to make it the senior team, but it remains to be seen how long he’ll take for that.
