Former Klopp centre-back completes move to Bulgarian side

Former Liverpool defender Connor Randal has signed a two-year deal with Bulgarian side Arda Kardzhali after being released from Anfield earlier this year.

Randall, who was given his Reds debut by Jurgen Klopp in a League Cup tie against Bournemouth in October 2015, went on to make a further seven first-team appearances for the club before his release in May.

The Liverpool Echo now reports that the 23-year-old has signed a two-year deal with Arda Kardzhali, who were promoted to the Bulgarian top flight for the first time in their history last term.

Arda have enjoyed a dramatic rise to the top flight following a takeover of the club by Bulgarian road construction company PSI Group in 2017, when the side were still in the third tier.

Since the takeover, Arda have achieved successive promotions and are currently fifth in the first division after eight games in the current campaign.

Randall, who had been part of the Liverpool academy since the age of six, was handed his first-team debut after impressing in a spell away with Shrewsbury Town.

His last appearance for Klopp’s side came in a fourth-round FA Cup defeat to Wolves in 2017.
