The defender made the matchday squad for the first time back in 2016 in the Reds’ FA Cup meeting with Exeter City.

Masterson had to then wait two more years until being included in the first-team squad again, with the Irishman making the bench under Jurgen Klopp in the Champions League.

However, that was Masterson’s last involvement in the squad and the youngster looks set to depart in the summer.

According to claims from The Mirror, the Saints retain an interest in signing the Welshman, who spent the 2018/19 season on loan at Derby County. Wilson helped the Rams climb into the play-off places towards the end of the campaign but could not push them over the line, as Aston Villa defeated them 2-1 in the final at Wembley Stadium on Monday.
