Caoimhin Kelleher to leave Liverpool

Caoimhin Kelleher, the Irish goalkeeper, has been placed up for sale by Liverpool this summer as Jurgen Klopp no longer sees him as a long-term Anfield player.

The second choice Liverpool goalkeeper up for sale?

Kelleher and Adrian have battled it out for Liverpool’s backup goalkeeper position behind Alisson, and Klopp wants to make room in his goalkeeping staff so that more promising young academy players can advance.

The 24-year-old has been waiting for his breakthrough campaign at Anfield, but he might be leaving for more playing time.

Despite a waiting list already growing, the Reds will not loan him next season, and it appears he will be sold.

However, in Merseyside, his contract doesn’t end until the summer of 2026. It’s possible that the Reds may need to find a backup keeper who will be willing to be a second-string.

Kelleher has featured 20 times for the first team since coming through the youth ranks at the club.

The Irishman is back-up to Alisson having dislodged Adrian as the second choice between the sticks player.

He has been part of Jurgen Klopp’s squad that won the FA Cup, Champions League, and also the Premier League.

Caoimhin Kelleher – The First Choice for many clubs

With a 0-0 draw played out between Liverpool and Derby at Anfield, the Carabao Cup third-round tie was left to be settled by a shootout.

Liverpool won 3-2, with their No. 2 Kelleher – becoming the first goalkeeper in the club’s history to win four penalty shootouts.

In the post-match interview, the Reds’ boss praised Kelleher saying,

“No, they were really good and he saved them anyway, so that’s massive.

Let’s just talk about tonight. I can’t remember the others, of course they were good as well, but tonight there were three really good penalties.”

However, Kelleher’s most memorable moment came in the Carabao Cup final against Chelsea last season.

The game went to penalties and he scored the decisive spot-kick to win the shoot-out 11-10.

However, despite the game-time issue, it seems Liverpool are about to sell Kelleher to gain funds for the much-needed midfield rebuild.
