Forgotten Liverpool player who signed in 2018 secures seventh loan move, he's yet to play for the Reds
| Last updated
The wait for Anderson Arroyo's Liverpool debut is set to go on for another season, with the defender securing a seventh loan move away from Anfield.
Arroyo joined Liverpool from Colombian side Fortaleza in 2018 after he impressed at the U20s South American Youth Championship.
The 23-year-old, who can play at centre-back and right-back, immediately moved to La Liga side Mallorca on an 18-month loan deal and was assigned to the B team during his spell at the Spanish club.
That deal was cancelled soon after, with the defender joining Belgian giants Gent. However, he did not make an appearance for the club.
Further loan spells followed at Czech Republic side Mlada Boleslav and Spanish third tier club Salamanca before he then moved up a division in Spain for the 2021/22 season, joining Mirandes.
It came as something of a surprise to see the defender sign a new contract at Liverpool until 2025 last summer.
He then joined Spanish side Alaves on loan last season, making 22 appearances for the club as they secured promotion back to La Liga.
Arroyo will now return to Spanish second division to play for FC Andorra, joining the club on loan for the 2023/24 campaign.
Remarkably, five years after joining Liverpool he is yet to make a single senior appearance for the club.
The reason why Arroyo has been sent out on so many successive loans is because he did not receive a work permit when joining the club.
He will now continue his career in Spain, with FC Andorra facing Leganes in their opening match of the new season in mid-August.
Liverpool, meanwhile, are currently training in Germany ahead of their opening pre-season friendly against Karlsruher on Wednesday.
Jurgen Klopp's side face Chelsea in their opening match of the Premier League season on August 13.
