Conor Coady was a product of the Academy and made two appearances in a red shirt before sealing a permanent move to Huddersfield Town in August 2014.
The Scouser who made his senior debut with a start in a 1-0 Europa League loss to Anzhi Makhachkala in Russia on November 8, 2012.
Capable of playing at centre-back as well as in the middle of the park, Coady captained England U17s to their first ever European Championships title in 2010.
Another landmark arrived for the local lad in May 2013 when Brendan Rodgers handed Coady a first Premier League appearance as a late substitute during a victory over Fulham at Craven Cottage.
Coady wore the skipper's armband during the Three Lions' unsuccessful U20 World Cup campaign in 2013 and, as part of his continued development, subsequently joined League One outfit Sheffield United on a six-month loan deal in July 2013 - which was later extended until the end of the season.
The move was hugely beneficial for the young man; he featured in 50 games for the Blades and experienced a fairytale journey to the FA Cup semi-finals, although heartbreak unfolded against Hull City at Wembley.
