Liverpool midfielder steps up injury comeback as forward gets Klopp’s promotion

Liverpool midfielder Tyler Morton continued his journey to full fitness by participating in training on Tuesday afternoon at the AXA Training Centre.

Morton has been sidelined since April after undergoing surgery on a metatarsal injury that ruled him out of the final weeks of his season-long loan with Blackburn Rovers.

As a result, the 20-year-old continued his rehabilitation on Merseyside during the summer months and was unable to feature in any of the five pre-season games.

However, Tuesday marked a significant milestone in Morton’s comeback as he took part in a session at the AXA Training Centre with the rest of Liverpool’s first-team.

Images from the session show the youngster with a ball at his feet before later working on his strength and conditioning alongside Ben Doak and Harvey Elliott.

After spending four months on the sidelines, Morton, who penned a new, long-term contract back in January, is one of a number of players who could depart Anfield on a temporary basis before next Friday’s transfer deadline.

Elsewhere at the AXA Training Centre on Tuesday, 17-year-old Trent Kone-Doherty was rewarded for his electric start to the new season with Liverpool’s academy sides as he trained with the first team for the first time.

The forward, who made the move to Anfield from Derry City last summer, marked his full Premier League 2 debut with a goal against Derby County last Friday.

Although the Republic of Ireland youth international had started the season with Marc Bridge-Wilkinson’s under-18s, he was quickly promoted to the under-21s after his fine performance in the 4-2 victory over Nottingham Forest on the opening day of the season.

Alongside Kone-Doherty, Lewis Koumas was also involved in Tuesday’s session.
