Liverpool loan star completes FANTASTIC turnaround to end season with award

Fabio Carvalho has ended the season with an award - capping a wonderful turnaround in what has been a strange campaign.

Fabio Carvalho has won EFL Young Player of the Month for April, capping off a fantastic second half of the season for the on-loan Liverpool player. The Portuguese playmaker scored five times and assisted a couple more across seven games.

Carvalho went to Hull City in January after a disastrous spell at RB Leipzig. He barely featured there - just 136 Bundesliga minutes from August through December.

That couldn't have gone worse, really, and all parties agreed to a premature end in January. Then Hull came calling to deliver exactly what Carvalho needed.

He's been a regular and an incredibly productive one. His start was relatively slow but the last 14 Championship fixtures brought eight goals and two assists - the kind of form in the second-tier that earned him the move to Liverpool.

Now attention turns to Carvalho's future. He's actually one of the most in-form players on the books right now, given the Reds' slow finish to the campaign.

It may just put him in a position to impress across a pre-season where everyone starts at zero under Arne Slot. Carvalho's Liverpool career looked dead and buried not too long ago.

Now it feels like he's got a chance.

Liverpool x Hull City

Carvalho actually joins fellow Hull City player Tyler Morton as a winner of the EFL Young Player of the Month award this season. Morton, of course, is also on loan from Liverpool.

The midfielders will both link back up with the Reds this summer and will do so with confidence. Midfield is a strange position right now, with plenty of options but few true standouts.

They pair may just have a chance of breaking into the first-team setup this summer and we're exciting to see what they can bring in pre-season.
