Caoimhin Kelleher says he is yet to make a decision about whether he will remain at Liverpool next season or leave on loan in search of more first team football.
The 23-year-old Corkman started eight games for Liverpool last season, two in the Premier League, two in the FA Cup, and four in the League Cup.
"I’m not sure on what’s happening yet," Kelleher said on Monday during a press conference ahead of Ireland's Nations League game against Ukraine.
I’m still finishing this season, and then we will have conversations after that to see what happens. I need to play these next few games, see what happens, and decide after that.
One of the highlights of Kelleher's season was scoring the winning penalty in a League Cup final shootout against Chelsea.
'To win a cup with a big club like Liverpool was a great moment'
"It was a really special moment for me," said Kelleher.
"To win a cup with a big club like Liverpool was a great moment. When you do it once, you want to do it again and again, and get that feeling.
"At club level, we won two trophies earlier in the season, and then the end of the season wasn't ideal losing the two finals. It taught me to not get too high on the highs, not too low on the lows - just try to keep that even keel. It's given me good experience on how to deal with winning, coming down from a high, and then being on a low after losing."
A back injury which ruled Gavin Bazunu out of the defeat to Armenia on Saturday will also keep the Manchester City goalkeeper out of the three upcoming Nations League games at home and away to Ukraine, and at home to Scotland.
"I don't know what's going to happen at club level, but if I keep performing when I get the chance, hopefully, I can keep hold of the [Ireland number one] jersey," said Kelleher.
"It’s unfortunate what happened to Gavin, I wouldn’t wish injuries on anyone, but it is an opportunity for me to get in, do a good job and try to hold onto the shirt."
