There has been some reports which have claimed Liverpool will be keeping tabs on Crewe Alexandra goalkeeper Ben Garrett.
Former Crewe keeper Steve Philips has just joined the coaching staff at Liverpool, and is keen to take the young man to Merseyside with him.
And he told The Sentinel: “There was not the budget for the goalkeeping coach because I would have loved to have stayed.
“Steve (Davis) did not think my shoulder was strong enough to play 20-odd games a season.
“I think I could have taken Ben to the next level and I would have backed myself to make him one of the best young keepers in the country.
“I really enjoyed it – if I do anything I don’t do it 90 per cent, I give it everything and I think people will vouch for that.”
