Liverpool youth Samed Yeşil

Liverpool youngster Samed Yeşil is set to make return to U21 football against Fulham U21 tomorrow.

Yeşil has returned to training after recovering from a double cruciate ligament injury and is expected to return to match fitness in time for the reserve league game on Tuesday 7 April.

The 20-year-old ruptured his anterior cruciate ligament for the second time in a year in January 2014.

The Reds signed Yeşil from Bayer Leverkusen for €1 million last season but he has only made two first team appearances for Liverpool.

The 20-year-old is eligible to represent both his country of birth and Turkey at senior international level like fellow former Bayer player Emre Can.

Yeşil has one goal and one assist in five U-21 games for the Reds this season.

The young striker was regarded as one of the brightest talents in European football when he joined the Reds and U21 manager Michael Beale still believes he is his sides best finisher.

“We want him to get a good three or four months of playing and a good pre-season in him, to show his own potential. His finishing is probably second-to-none in our group at U21s,” Beale told the official Liverpool website.
