While it was a quiet day for Liverpool FC as far as incoming transfers were concerned, same could not be said about their outgoing ones. Tiago Ilori’s loan move to Aston Villa with an option to buy for the English side sent shockwaves across the Liverpool FC fanbase, who expect big things from the Portuguese youngster.

Liverpool Echo confirmed that Liverpool FC have loaned out Ilori to Aston Villa with an option to buy between A?6m and A?9m depending on the appearances he makes.

The news came as a surprise to the fans, who had seen Ilori being hailed for his performances in the European Under 21 Championship after having signed for A?7m from Sporting Lisbon.

However, the player was shipped off for a A?1m loan fee with an option to buy, clearly indicating that his future at Anfield was up in the air.

Unsurprisingly, the fans were not too pleased and took to twitter to express their opinions.
