Liverpool 'will move into their new £50m training ground next month' as Jurgen Klopp gives the green light for switch to Kirkby after delays to construction caused by coronavirus

Liverpool will finally leave Melwood and move into their new £50million training ground in Kirkby next month, according to reports.

The Reds were due to make the switch at the end of last season but delays to construction, caused by coronavirus and social distancing measures, held up the move.

The club sold Melwood for £10m but ensured they had the option to stay for the 2020-2021 campaign in the event of unforeseen circumstances. According to The Athletic, Jurgen Klopp approved the decision to make the move mid-season with the manager keen for it to happen during the next international break.
