Liverpool FC invite Coventry star Cian Harries to train with first team | Daily Mail Online Liverpool have invited Coventry City defender Cian Harries to train with them ahead of a possible transfer. The promising 19-year-old has been compared in style to former Liverpool captain Alan Hansen for his willingness to step out of defence with the ball and his composure under pressure. He has made 14 appearances for Coventry's first team this season and signed a contract extension in November which ties him to the club until 2020. He had a brief loan spell with Cheltenham Town last January and Liverpool scouts have picked up on his potential. Former Coventry boss Tony Mowbray hailed the teenager as 'a fantastic prospect' when he signed professional terms in 2015. Liverpool have now asked permission for the Wales youth international to train with their players at Melwood ahead of a prospective move. Cash-strapped Coventry would like Harries to stay and develop but recognise it is too good an opportunity for all parties to turn down.
