Liverpool Starlet Clarkson Joins Aberdeen On Loan — Klopp Compared Him With Philipp Lahm Earlier

Liverpool have confirmed that Leighton Clarkson has sealed a loan move to Aberdeen.

The 20-year-old was on loan Blackburn last season but it didn't work out for the midfielder. He made only seven appearances before the loan was cut short in January.

Clarkson has made two appearances for Liverpool, including one in the Champions League, against Midtjylland in December 2020.

Now he's off to Scotland to try to rediscover his form. The potential is there — back in 2020, Jurgen Klopp compared him to Bayern legend Philipp Lahm.

"In Germany, there’s a famous player who played similar to him. You might have to go back a little longer and I don’t want to put pressure on the boy but he reminds me a lot of him," Klopp said at the time.

"He’s just a good footballer, a smart footballer. He’s fast, physically strong. If you see him, his legs are not like a 19-year-old boy’s legs — they are already grown and so I am really happy to give him his opportunity because he deserves it."
