Liverpool have not made an official bid for Carlisle defender Jarrad Braithwaite according to the president of the third-tier club.
Carlisle president Andrew Jenkins confirmed that Liverpool have not made a move for the talented defender who is also attracting interest from both England and Scotland.
The 17-year-old has made 14 appearances for English League Two outfit Carlisle this season at such a tender age.
Carlisle supremo Andrew Jenkins revealed the status of Liverpool over a move for their player in his latest interview as disclosed by the Liverpool Echo.

Apart from Liverpool, fellow Premier League teams Chelsea and Everton are also in the mix for Jarrad Braithwaite.
Scottish Premiership giants Celtic and Rangers have also been touted as a possible transfer destination for the Carlisle youngster.
Liverpool have a lot of young defenders on their books and the signing of another young defensive player like Jarrad Braithwaite would see him feature for the youth teams rather than the first team.
One of the young Liverpool defenders Nathaniel Phillips has been sent back to German top-flight side VfB Stuttgart on loan having been called back last month to offset the injuries to first-team defenders like Dejan Lovren, Fabinho, and Joel Matip.
