With little chance of accumulating playig time in Liverpool's first team, young Owen Beck has decided to accept a proposal from Famalicao. The left-back, just 19 years old, will remain on loan at the Portuguese club until the end of the 2022-2023 season.

Forged in the Reds' youth academy, the Welshman has had the opportunity to play two matches under the orders of Jürgen Klopp (both FA Cup). Now, the defender faces the challenge of accumulating merits and minutes to earn a place in future projects of the English club.

The 19-year-old left-back is highly valued by the Reds and several members of the Liverpool hierarchy see him as a future starter for the six-time European champions.

The opportunity to play abroad is seen as a positive for Beck, who, after just two Premier League appearances last season, is now looking for first-team football with four years remaining on his current contract at Anfield.

Beck's young history in Liverpool

Beck, whose great-uncle is Ian Rush, has already made two first-team appearances for Liverpool, coming on as a substitute in Carabao Cup wins over Preston and Leicester as Liverpool won a domestic double. He was also an unused substitute in three Premier League games.

Beck scored a goal and provided three assists for Liverpool's youth team last season, and also starred in the young Reds' trip to the UEFA Youth League quarterfinals, making six appearances.
