Liverpool loan out Allan brought in on transfer deadline day

Liverpool have loaned Allan Rodrigues de Souza to Finnish side Seinajoen Jalkapallokerho after finalising the £500,000 signing of the Brazilian attacking midfielder.

The 18-year-old, who has been training with the Reds all summer, played three friendlies for the Under 21s and was included in the first-team squad for their game in Helsinki last month, joins from Internacional.

Liverpool submitted the paperwork to complete the deal on Tuesday and – having had confirmation of his signing – he has been sent out to gain some European experience.

Allan did not appear for the first team at Internacional but he impressed the scouts and coaches of Liverpool at the U-18 International Cup earlier this year scoring two goals in five games.

He joined Internacional in 2013 and was contracted to the club for another two years.

Allan’s move to England was facilitated by agent Giuliano Bertolucci whose client list also includes Chelsea midfielder Oscar and Paris Saint-Germain’s David Luiz.
