As Liverpool inches toward the conclusion of their 2023-24 campaign, their vast loan army is still playing important roles at their various clubs across the continent.

There is a lot of good news to report on that front as the Reds should be more than thrilled with some of the things they have seen from their youngsters. Let's get caught up on some updates from the players that have shined the brightest recently.

Fabio Carvalho - AM - Hull City

It was another productive week for Carvalho as he continues to have an impactful stint with Hull City. He had a goal and an assist in their 3-2 win over Coventry on Wednesday.

He backed up that performance with another assist on Saturday as the Tigers battled to a 3-3 draw with Ipswich Town. That brings him up to 9 goals and 2 assists from only 19 appearances since he came over in January.

His goal return is almost double that of his 4.9 xG. He averages a shade over 5 progressive passes received per 90 minutes meaning he is always putting himself in dangerous positions. This continues to be a wonderful loan spell for the youngster.

Tyler Morton - DM/CM - Hull City

Carvalho's teammate at Hull and fellow Liverpool loanee, Tyler Morton has also thrived with the Championship side all season.

The 21-year old English midfielder has made a healthy 40 appearances this season with 34 of those being starts as he has become a vital piece to the system being run by manager Liam Rosenior.

Morton has 8 goal contributions from his deep lying midfield role this season as he has shown a strong talent for playing forward when needed before tracking back and disrupting the great many counters you see in that division.

He has handled the rigors of playing regular Championship midfield, which is no small feat. He really is making himself a consideration for the Reds and new boss Arne Slot next season.

Leighton Clarkson - MF - Aberdeen

Much in the same way that Morton has become a fixture in the Hull City midfield, Clarkson has made himself a prominent figure in the Scottish side's midfield.

He's played 35 times this year for Aberdeen as 28 of those were starts. This is his second season with The Dons. Last year he was more productive in terms of goals and assists, but he has developed into a more all-around player this season.

Hs defensive duties have improved as he tries to become more in-tune with all aspects of the game. He rarely comes off as evidenced by his last five games played, including yesterday, he has played the full 90 three times.

Sepp van den Berg - CB - Mainz 05

The Dutch defender has been one of the best young defenders in the German Bundesliga this season.

He has tackled 58% of the dribblers he's faces across his 31 appearances this season. He leads Mainz in blocks wth 57, as the next closest is 38. He has no issue throwing himself into challenges which is something that should bode well for him going forward.

He's fourth in the side in combined tackles and interceptions. Perhaps the most impressive stat for van den Berg would be that he has 139 clearances. That is a ridiculous 92 more than any of his teammates.

Could he be a defensive rotational piece next season?
