Liverpool FC: Summer Loan Report
Liverpool have farmed out plenty of their youngsters on loan, sending out no less than 14 of their reserve team members to different clubs for playing experience.
The most notable name on the list is Emre Can
, who makes a temporary move to join Turkish champions Galatasaray.
The 21-year-old joined Liverpool last summer from Bayer Leverkusen in a £10.25 million deal, but has been one of the more average players in the Reds' title-winning lineup. Can made only 15 appearances in the Premier League and 21 in all competitions, most of them as a substitute from the bench.
The brilliant form of Jordan Henderson and Steven Gerrard kept him out of the team regularly last season, and the recent signing of James Ward-Prowse has not done much to help his first-team chances.
Emre Can has had a rather forgettable first season at Liverpool
Galatasaray will now take up Can for the rest of the season in their defence of the Süper Lig title.
is another player leaving the club for the season.
Origi has not played for Liverpool since joining the club for £11 million in 2014 because of a deal that saw him remain at Lille for the season. However, he has not impressed since the confirmation of his move and scored only 8 goals in 34 appearances for the Ligue 1 club.
And with the signing of Richairo Zivkovic, there is still no place in the squad for Origi, and Newcastle have agreed to loan the promising forward.
It will be a good experience for the Belgian international to get a first-hand taste of Premier League football, in a Toon side that desperately needs improvement after their disappointing 16th-placed finish in 2014/15.

Liverpool youngster Jordan Ibe has joined Millwall to aid in their push for promotion
There is also activity involving the lower leagues. Jordan Ibe
is one of a few Under-21 players being loaned to League One sides.
The 20-year-old plays on the right wing and is an exciting prospect, regularly giving solid performances while on loan at Derby last season, and will now ply his trade, albeit temporarily, at recently-relegated Millwall, who are aiming for promotion back to the Championship on their first try.
Reds boss Brendan Rodgers has confirmed that he sees Ibe in his future plans for Liverpool, and the former Wycombe teenager will hope he can make an impression at The Den.
