Pedro Chirivella says he would like to “return to Spain” with his chances of playing for Liverpool “not continuous”.
The young midfielder has had loans at Go Ahead Eagles and Willem II in the Netherlands but he has failed to earn a regular place in Jurgen Klopp’s first-team squad on his return.
Chirivella moved from Valencia’s youth ranks to Liverpool‘s academy in 2013 and, despite making two League Cup substitute appearances this term, the opportunities aren’t coming regularly enough for the Spaniard.
“I have had two or three windows where I was about to leave,” Chirivella told Marca.
“Or that I get to leave, but that by other people’s circumstances I just can’t enjoy minutes where I want, which is in Spain.
“The same thing happened a little this summer; I was close to going to Spain again, but due to circumstances the club decided that I had to stay again.
“And I loved every time I had the opportunity. But you have to be realistic; the opportunities are not continuous due to the players at the club.
“Yes, I would like to find a solution in January and return to Spain. And if not, we would look to next summer to return to Spain definitely.”
