Calvin Ramsay jets back into UK from Dubai as Leeds United-Liverpool transfer decision made

Aberdeen right-back Calvin Ramsay is snubbing a transfer to Leeds United in favour of joining Liverpool, according to Sun journalist Alan Nixon.

Writing via his Patreon account on Sunday (5 June), Nixon claimed that Ramsay, 18, has jetted back into the UK after a holiday in Dubai and is set to join Liverpool in the coming days.

It is understood that the Scottish full-back had the opportunity to move to Elland Road but has opted “to take his chances” with Liverpool and is expected to sign a long-term deal at Anfield.

Good luck to him

We’re not in the business of being bitter.

Ramsay is a teenager who’s done very well at Aberdeen and is being offered a chance to sign for one of the best teams in Europe in Liverpool.

The young right-back also has the chance to go and play with Scotland’s star left-back Andrew Robertson, who’ll no doubt be a massive influence for him.

Trent Alexander-Arnold has the right-back slot nailed down at Anfield but learning in his shadow also isn’t a terrible thing for Ramsay, who played 33 times in all competitions for the Dons in 2021/22, scoring one goal and supplying nine assists in the process.

Anyway, it has been widely reported that Leeds are signing Red Bull Salzburg’s right-back Rasmus Kristensen [Sky Sports] so Jesse Marsch simply doesn’t need Ramsay.

Luke Ayling’s going to be out injured until the autumn, Stuart Dallas will return midway through the season and youngster Cody Drameh is also on hand so Marsch will have plenty of right-back options as well as Kristensen once he arrives.

We wish Ramsay all the best at Liverpool.

It’ll be tough for him but it’s arguably a better move for him to go there than it is to join Leeds, where he’d also probably be a bench-warmer.

In other Leeds United news, a £54,000-a-week contract has been agreed for the Whites to seal a £20million-plus signing.
