The report says: "The Irish shot-stopper has caught the eye since his move to Merseyside in 2015, with Kelleher now the third-choice goalkeeper at Anfield – dislodging veteran Andy Lonergan in the process.

"Klopp rates him so highly that there is even talk of him being loaned out to Championship side Preston North End, however the German wants reassurances that he will get regular game time before he authorises the move."
