Cameron Brannagan is on the verge on completing a season-long loan move to Championship side, Wigan Athletic.

The Echo reports that the Latics have agreed to Klopp’s new requirement for loanees to play in at least 75 percent of games for which they are available. If they fail to adhere to the rule, they will be penalised financially.

It is thought the deal will be completed this weekend.

Neil Jones writes that Wigan initially wanted to pay us £1 million to sign the youngster on a permanent basis, but Klopp was impressed with what he saw last term and sees the player’s long-term future at Anfield.

He played nine times for the senior side in the 2015/16 campaign.

“If I’m not going to get regular game time here, I’d love the experience of what it’s like because that’s something I’ve not done before,” he said.

“Going out on loan, playing Championship football against men would be good experience for me. I’d like to do that.”

According to the article, he might even play in Red one last time against Barcelona this weekend before he joins up with his new club.
