      Won the Finnish league and should be returning to be assessed, but I still don't think he's eligible for a work permit? So maybe he'll be shipped out again.

      Great comments from the Boss.  Also good that he's got his call up to the u20 Brazil squad as it could help with his work permit.

      Jürgen Klopp today expressed his admiration for the progress of on-loan Liverpool youngster Allan, who was called up by Brazil U20s for a training camp in Rio de Janeiro this week as his development continues.

      The 19-year-old midfielder is one of only three players from clubs based in Europe to be involved in his country’s preparations for the South American Youth Championship in Ecuador, which serves as a qualifying tournament for the 2017 U20 World Cup.

      Allan’s performances in helping SJK win the Finnish title for the first time and most recently for Belgium’s Sint-Truidense – where he has featured against the likes of Club Brugge, Standard Liege and Anderlecht – have caught the eye of coach Rogerio Micale.

      And that of his club manager too, who has revealed why initial glimpses of the Brazilian in training were enough to convince him of the former Internacional starlet’s long-term potential.

      Klopp told Liverpoolfc.com: “When I came here, one or two months later Allan was here and I said ‘who is this?’. ‘He is a player for us and the week before he became a champion in Finland.’ ‘Interesting - why didn’t he play here?’ ‘Because it’s not possible.’ And then I started learning about the FA rules and things like this.

      "I saw him in training and I thought ‘oh my God, what can we do to keep this boy here and bring him into the line-up?’ He’s 19 years old, an outstanding talent, a good player with a good attitude, everybody loves him, he’s a nice lad – so that’s really, really good. He’s a smart player.

      "There is no chance in this moment here because he can’t get the permission to play here, so we have to send him out on loan. We sent him to Belgium and he did well, really well until now. We had no doubts about this, it was a good transfer for both sides.

      "Now for the first time he has got an invitation for the national U20 team, and that’s great. It’s really deserved because he’s an outstanding talent. Everybody has seen him, but it’s not too easy to have a lot of pictures of him because most of the time he has played in other countries.

      "We hope we can find a solution in the future because he will be a fixed part of the squad in the future, for sure. Now he uses this time to improve and the next step to the U20 national team of Brazil is a great story.”

      From watching the video the kids got a wand of a left foot. I don't honestly know how good the Finnish league is, but he looked different class in there. Great passing range though, and definite possibilities.

      Yes, the waffles are great but don't make any jokes about phlegm and the Flemish, they don't take them that well...

      In all seriousness what great comments from Klopp. Man management at its best, hopefully the U20 call up helps his permit issue and he can be involved next year.

      Hi! First post ever here, I live in Belgium.

      Haven't seen him play a lot myself, but what I have seen, was very promising. The Sint-Truiden supporters over here absolutely love him and say it's a shame he got injured this season. Some even go as far as saying he is one of the better midfielders in Belgium, I can't confirm that though, haven't seen enough of him myself, but I'll try to keep a close look at him in the play-offs.

      Welcome to the forum mate and thanks for the info. Great to hear he's so highly rated by those that watch him regularly, it seems Klopp agrees too!

      Started against KV Mechelen today in Play-Off II. Didn't have the greatest of games. Sloppy in possession and a few misplaced passes in the first half. As the game went on, he started to play a bit better, but overall an average game. He eventually got substituted in the 65th minute. Looking forward to his next game.

      Was in the starting eleven again against Charleroi today. Played better than his last game.

      - Good positioning and cutting of the opponent's passing lines
      - Good movement
      - Passing was better
      - Decent workrate

      Overall he was pretty decent. One ugly foul to break of a counter attack which resulted in a yellow card. Substituted again in the 65th minute.

      Sint-Truiden games aren't exactly the most exciting games to watch, but I'll do anything to give a meaningful contribution to the forum!

      Here I am again with the weekly Allan match report!

      Another place in the starting eleven, this time against Lokeren (Arguably the best team in Sint-Truidens' play-off group.)

      Went about his business as usual and this time it was for the full 90 minutes!

      - Always makes himself available for the back four
      - Good positioning again
      - Tidy in possession, a few decent long balls

      I would love to see him play for a better team than Sint-Truiden though, it really isn't hard to stand out there.

      So he's a mini-Lucas! :D I'm on board with that.

      Thanks for the update again, mate.

      Quite the surprise today, no place in the starting eleven for Allan and stuck on the bench for the full 90 minutes. Saw his team get a 2-2 draw against Lokeren.

      There are two games left to play. Let's hope we see some more of him then. It will be interesting to see what Klopp's plans are with him for next season.

      A bit late with the usual update, but then again, there wasn't much to update you guys on. He started on the bench again against KV Mechelen in a 2-2 draw.

      The manager is giving other young Belgians some chances in the starting eleven and it seems to be working for them. They are picking up some points against better teams. My guess is his season is over, there's only one game left to play and I can't disagree with giving other players some chances instead of a player on loan who is gone at the end of the season. Sint-Truiden has to rebuild the squad.

      Really curious about what's going to happen with him next season. If we really want to see what he's worth, he will have to play in a better league and in a better team.

      I still feel Can needs a ball playing midfielder along side him, could Allan be that player? :o

      We need to get a work permit for him before we can make such plans though. I just think with the numbers we'll have in midfield next season that Rossiter was at the bottom of the pecking order, doesn't make sense to give him a new deal.

      Seems to be a bit of a comparison with the Origi deal.He ( Origi ) had problems getting game time towards the end of his loan spell.
      Now,question is.....Once they ( Origi & Allan ) have LFC on their minds,is it difficult to perform at their best ?

      Allan Rodrigues de Souza to be loaned out again this summer

      Liverpool will loan out young Brazilian midfielder Allan Rodrigues de Souza again this summer.

      The 19-year-old joined the Reds from Internacional last September, but does not yet qualify for a UK work permit.

      Subsequently, he has spent this season out on loan, first in Finland with SJK and more recently with Sint-Truidense in Belgium, where his performances have caught the eye.

      He has made nine appearances in the Jupiler Pro League, and Liverpool have been made aware of serious interest in Allan from clubs in France, Spain and Holland this summer.

      Allan is currently away with Brazil U20s in South Korea for a warm-up tournament ahead of next year’s U20 World Cup. He featured in a 1-1 draw against the hosts on Wednesday, playing 80 minutes, and has upcoming games against Japan and France.

      He is rated by Klopp, who spoke glowingly about the youngster earlier this year. Liverpool are keen for him to gather as much senior experience as possible as they look to navigate their way past the FA’s new work permit rules.

      It will be interesting to see where he ends up next season. Interest from Spain, France and Holland. The Dutch Eredivisie is around the same level as the Belgian Jupiler Pro League, so I'm guessing he will be off to either Spain or France then. If that's the case, I'll do my best to keep following him.

      Thanks for your updates, Danzel!

      I'm hoping a Spanish club comes in for him, will be easier to follow him.
