Asked about Woodburn’s future on Saturday, Klopp told the club’s official site: ‘We have to see. There are a couple of clubs interested, but to be honest if these clubs don’t give me the guarantee that he will play, there is absolutely no reason from my point of view to give him on loan.
‘When we give players on loan, we don’t want to make them ready for life outside because that’s what we can do as well.
‘We want to give them the opportunity to play football and for playing football you need to fight for your place, but that’s what they learn here as well. You don’t need to give them on loan so they learn this.
‘I think if something happens with a loan, then it will happen at the end of the week.
‘We will really try to give him as many sessions as possible so if he goes somewhere, he is really in a good situation.”
Woodburn has made just 11 appearances for Liverpool, while he as nine caps for Wales.
Hull are currently sat in 12th place, six points off the play off places.
