Rhian Brewster will be forced to wait before he is thrown into the Liverpool first team after an injury setback.
Brewster, 18, has been sidelined since January after undergoing surgery on an ankle injury.
The teenager had been tipped to force his way into the Reds first team picture this season with Jurgen Klopp a big admirer.
But Liverpool doctors have discovered that the surgery which put Brewster in plaster will require a longer period of rehabilitation than first anticipated.
And that is likely to keep the teenage striker on the sidelines until December.
Brewster is regarded as a huge talent at Anfield, and Klopp will aim to fast track him into the first team squad next year, when he has recovered fully from the injury.
The youngster considered his future this summer but after links to Borussia Monchengladbach, signed a new long-term deal with Liverpool.
"I wanted to be playing first-team football and if that meant going, I’d have gone," he told FourFourTwo.
"But I felt it was right to stay at Liverpool and prove that I’m good enough to play in the first team.
“I hope to make my debut and play quite a bit this season."
