Corey Whelan, Yeovil Town
Corey Whelan became the first of what is expected to be several Liverpool youngsters to seal temporary moves away from the club, after it was announced on Friday that the 20-year-old has joined League Two relegation battlers Yeovil Town until the end of the season.
Whelan has been a mainstay in the U23s for several seasons, captaining the side this year, and gets his first taste of professional football after signing a new contract with the Reds last month.
Whelan subsequently made his pro debut on Saturday, as Yeovil upset League One Bradford City 2-0 in the FA Cup third round.
The defender came off the bench after 85 minutes for a brief cameo appearance. He will hope to make his full debut when Yeovil host Forest Green in the EFL Trophy third round on Tuesday.
Jordan Williams, Rochdale
Rochdale progressed to the FA Cup fourth round on Saturday, after winning 1-0 at fellow League One side Doncaster Rovers. Jordan Williams remains out.
Taiwo Awoniyi, Pedro Chirivella, Ryan Kent, Divock Origi, and Connor Randall were not in competitive action this week.
