Liverpool have sent two more youngster out on loan to gain further first-team experienceGetty Images

League Two leaders Burton Albion have signed Liverpool pair Jack Dunn and Kevin Stewart on one-month deals on the final day of trading in the Football League loan window.

Both Jones and Stewart spent time with Cheltenham Town earlier in the season before having their spells curtailed due to injury, and become the second and third players to leave the club in the final hours of the window.

Fellow Under-21 midfielder Jordan Lussey has moved to Bolton Wanderers until the end of the campaign to take the number of Liverpool players currently out on loan to 12, with further departures possible ahead of the sharp end of the Football League season.

During the international break, which sees a host of Liverpool's first-team players away with their respective nations, the club's development squad train with the remaining members of manager Brendan Rodgers' main set-up.

It provides peripheral members of the Liverpool squad the opportunity to pass down their experience to those coming through the ranks and Under-21 coach Michael Beale says Lucas Leiva has been among those assisting the young pretenders.

"Lucas has joined us and it's a pleasure to have him," Beale said. "He knows a few of the boys. He gets on really well with Jordan Williams and the Spanish boys like [Pedro] Chirivella and [Sergi] Canos, he helps them along.

"This is where everyone wants to be and you see an extra 10% in the training when the boys come here. It's brilliant for them.

"The boys are here quite regularly. Every day, I liaise with Mike Marsh or Colin Pascoe in the morning at around 9.30am and at least three or four come across nearly every day. But the international breaks are a really good chance for us to come across en masse."
