Bolton Wanderers midfielder gives verdict on Manchester City & Liverpool loan talents

Aaron Morley believes the three young Premier League players on loan at Bolton Wanderers are all non-stop in their approach to life at the club owing to their top flight mentality and aspirations.

Defenders Owen Beck and fellow Liverpool team-mate Conor Bradley are spending the campaign on loan at the Whites. Goalkeeper James Trafford is doing the same from Manchester City, following a successful spell at Wanderers last season.

All three are at top flight clubs and have the ambition to play in the first teams of their respective teams. Bradley, a Northern Ireland international, has done just that last season.

Beck is a Wales under-21 international, while Trafford has also represented England at the same level. The latter has made no secret of his desire to one day be the number one goalkeeper at both City and with the Three Lions.

Midfielder Morley is in the same dressing room as the trio and has hailed their work ethic as they have their sights set highly to make the grade back at their parent clubs.

He said: “They’re (Bradley and Beck) just great pros, they never stop working every day. They’re always in the gym and they obviously want to get back into the Liverpool team, so they’re working everyday to impress both the Liverpool manager and our manager so they’re just non-stop everyday.

“Conor is a great player. He’s a real outlet for us, so hopefully we can keep him.

“He’s (Trafford) exactly the same. He’s just non-stop all the time and hopefully one day he can wear that number one shirt for England and for City.”
