Liverpool defender completes League One loan to regain his ‘confidence’

Date published: Thursday 14th January 2021 4:30

Liverpool have confirmed that young defender Adam Lewis has joined Plymouth Argyle on loan for the rest of the season.

Lewis, 21, is a Liverpool academy graduate who made his senior debut for the club in the FA Cup in 2020.

Highly-rated by Steven Gerrard when the former Liverpool captain was in charge of the club’s under-18s, Lewis went on to spend the first half of this season on loan in France.

However, his spell with second-tier side Amiens did not go to plan. He made just six starts during his time in Ligue 2, and has not played since November.

Therefore, Liverpool decided to cancel his loan, preferring to send him out elsewhere. That destination has now become clear.

Lewis has joined League One outfit Plymouth on loan for the rest of the season. He could make his debut against Crewe on Sunday.

The left-back remains under a long-term contract with Liverpool, so will be hoping to show what he can do in League One.

It will give the England youth international his first taste of league football in England, and he is hoping to make the most of it.

Lewis explains transfer

Speaking to Argyle Media, Lewis explained why he wanted a fresh challenge after his time with Amiens.

He said: “I was in France, obviously on loan, never worked out for me. When this came up, I was right at it, obviously because I haven’t played a lot.

“It’s a massive club, the manager’s great, the backroom staff, so I didn’t think twice of coming here.

“I can’t wait to get on that pitch and show everyone what I’ve got.”

Asked what his targets are for the remainder of the season, he said: “Get as many games in as possible, obviously in France I didn’t play as much as I’d like to.

“But I think here I’ll probably get the chance to play against better players, get my confidence back, and show all the fans and everyone in the Argyle family that I’m ready to be here.”
