Flanagan (knee) has returned to practice but still is without a definite timetable for his 2015 debut, the Liverpool Echo reports.

Flanagan hasn't made any appearances during the 2014-15 campaign but is apparently making a late-season push to get back onto the pitch. He's currently working on a new contract with Liverpool and his health will be a determining factor for that deal to be completed, meaning there's added incentive for the 22-year-old to play as soon as possible.
