Liverpool striker Nathan Ecclestone is set to leave the club on loan in January.
A number of clubs are believed to be interested in the hot-shot, although talkSPORT reports that Charlton and Crystal Palace are two of the main clubs vying for the player's signature.
20-year-old Ecclestone has been prolific for the Anfield outfit at both junior and reserve team level, although is yet to get an opportunity of serious note for the Liverpool first team.
SkySports reported earlier in the week that Barclays Premier League teams are monitoring the player's situation, although it appears more likely that Liverpool will look to loan the youngster outside of the top flight.
After a successful stint at Huddersfield Town last season, Hodgson is keen for the youngster to gain more first team experience, something which is likely to benefit Liverpool in the long run.
The Merseysiders have an impressive array of young talent at various levels throughout the club, with the U18 Liverpool academy at Melwood one of the most revered in the country.
Ecclestone has progressed through that system, and could be a star of the future at Anfield as the Liverpool owners urge the club to play more of their homegrown talents.
