Jurgen Klopp will not send Curtis Jones out on loan as he wants the 19-year old to develop at Anfield.
Ralf Rangnick once enquired about signing the 19-year old on loan during his time as head coach at RB Leipzig.
The midfielder scored two goals in Liverpool’s EFL Cup victory at Sincil Bank.
“I know that they ( Liverpool ) don’t (want to send him out on loan), because I was asking Jurgen about Curtis two years ago, if they would send him to Leipzig on loan for a year or two, and he said no,” the German told The Football Show on Sky Sports.
“Jurgen wants to keep him. I think he knows what kind of massive talent he has with Curtis in his squad.
“He’s one of the most exciting young players in England, currently.
“Of course, for him, the problem is he has so many top players ahead of him. The good thing is that most of those homegrown Liverpudlian young players, they don’t want to leave.
“Not only do they not want to leave England, they also don’t want to leave Liverpool.
“I think it will be important that he has the patience but, on the other hand, gets enough game time this season and next season, because I think if he doesn’t play regularly in the next two years, it will be difficult to accelerate his development.
“In him, I see one of the most exciting players and it will be very interesting to see what happens with him in the next one or two years.”
