The Japanese forward has barely featured for his parent club this season and finalised a switch late on transfer deadline day after passing a medical

Minamino has started just two Premier League appearances so far in the campaign and has fallen back down the pecking order behind Divock Origi and Xherdan Shaqiri.

It looked as though he may be given more chances to impress in the first team after scoring in the 7-0 drubbing of Crystal Palace last month.

But since then he has appeared just once in the league off the bench as an 84th minute substitute, having flopped in the FA Cup win over Aston Villa’s kids.

The 26-year-old has struggled to force his way into regular contention since moving to Liverpool a year ago in a £7million deal.

The deal is a straight loan swap and does not include an option or obligation to buy clause.

It comes on a busy day of transfer activity for Liverpool, who completed the signings of two defenders on the final day of the January window.
