Jurgen Klopp says Ben Woodburn will only be allowed to move on loan again if he is guaranteed first-team football.

Woodburn returned to Liverpool for treatment on an injured ankle last month before the 19-year-old's season-long loan at Sheffield United was cut short. He had made just eight appearances for the Blades.

He has returned to full fitness and was part of Liverpool's travelling party that have just returned from a warm-weather training camp in Dubai.

Klopp told Liverpool's website: "Ben Woodburn is an outstanding talent, still pretty much a kid, and I am happy to see him here, running around, completely fit and really settled in the squad.

"In the summer, I think he lost a bit of patience and it was really long he was already with us," Klopp added.

"The first-team situation didn't really change and then you maybe - and it's normal and can happen - lose patience.

"Then you have a rather average experience at another club and you come back and see here everything is still like it was before.
