Liverpool beat competition from Manchester City to sign Daniel Trickett-Smith from Crewe Alexandra in 2012 Getty

Liverpool midfielder Daniel Trickett-Smith has been asked to find a new club after failing to make the grade at Anfield following his arrival from Crewe Alexandra in 2012 for an initial fee of £300,000, which was expected to rise to £1m ($1.4m) depending on his progress at the club. The England youth international was highly rated when he arrived but will not be handed a new deal when his contract expires at the end of the current campaign.

According to the Daily Mail, the young midfielder, who impressed coaching staff at Liverpool following his arrival, played a key part in helping the U18's reach the semi-final of the FA Youth Cup in 2013. This prompted the club to offer him his first professional contract, but he has failed to replicate his academy form in the senior level while also failing to break into the first-team squad in the last three years under former manager Brendan Rodgers and current boss Jurgen Klopp.

Moreover, the attacking midfielder, who was tipped to be a future number 10 for Liverpool, has seen a number of players like Adam Lallana, Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino recruited to play in a similar position, which blocked his path to the senior side. The report claims that the Merseyside club, which beat off competition from Manchester City for his signature, have given him permission to talk to interested clubs with a view to a move in the summer.

Huddersfield Town, who are managed by Klopp's former assistant David Wagner, are said to be interested in signing the attacking midfielder, who has made just four substitute appearances for the Liverpool U21 side this season. The Championship side are currently in 18th place in the league and are eight points clear of the drop zone with six games yet to play.
