Crewe Alexandra have set up a deal to sign Liverpool youngster Danny O'Donnell on loan.
The 20-year-old is due to link up with Dario Gradi's side on Tuesday ahead of The Railwaymen's League One clash with Doncaster Rovers.
O'Donnell played against Crewe in pre-season, but is now ready to pen a six-month loan contract at Gresty Road.
The centre half has yet to make a senior appearance for Liverpool, but featured regularly in the reserves last season.
He had previously been spotted playing in the local amateur leagues before starting training full-time with the Premiership giants 12 months ago.
His impending arrival at Crewe will help to shore up a back-line which looked ill-at-ease in Saturday's 2-2 draw at home to Northampton Town.
