Youngster makes loan move permanent.
Liverpool today confirmed the sale of midfielder Ryan Flynn to Scottish Premier League side Falkirk.
The 20-year-old Scot was on a season-long loan with The Bairns but the deal has now been made permanent.
Flynn, who originally joined the Academy from Falkirk in 2006, was a key part of our successive FA Youth Cup wins, scoring in the final against Man City in 2006 and bagging three goals during the 2007 campaign.
He also helped the second string to league glory in 2007-08.

By all accounts Flynn was a decent player who just fell short of the standard required to get a place on the fringes of the first team picture, but a move to the SPL is by no means a bad one and clearly he can push on and do well for himself. Ryan has already become a regular at the club and has found the back of the net a couple of times already.
Luckily for us we have a fair few youngsters coming through the system who have made the grade, and given the recently announced homegrown Premier League rule, we are well placed to deal with the new guidelines.
