Conor Coady is keen to continue proving himself in the final months of his loan spell with Sheffield United in a bid to secure a future with Liverpool, the Daily Star understands.
The midfielder has helped the Blades embark on a nine game winning streak, culminating in the 2-0 victory over Charlton Athletic in the quarter finals of the FA Cup on Sunday afternoon.
Brendan Rodgers, and a number of the Reds’ squad have been sending messages of congratulations to the 21 year old, who has made just three appearances for his parent club since turning professional.
However, whilst acknowledging that it will be difficult, he is keen to break into Rodgers’ first team next season when his time with the League One side comes to an end.
Meanwhile, Pepe Reina’s time with Liverpool once again looks to be coming to an end, after the Mail Online reported that the Spain international could be sold for as little as £4m in the summer.
Brendan Rodgers appears to have closed the door on a possible return for the 31 year old, once his loan with Napoli is complete leaving the door open for Atletico Madrid, who could be on the hunt for a replacement for Chelsea loanee Thibaut Courtois.
