The defender was happy at the links but dismissed the chances of the transfer going through. Championship leaders Leeds United are also interested in the player.
The defender, who primarily plays as a left-back, is also adept on the other flank. He has made 32 appearances for the Sky Blues since being signed from Herne Bay in 2017.
Liverpool are in the market for a back-up to Andrew Robertson. Given the club’s focus on signing exciting young talent, it comes as no surprise that McCallum is one of the names under consideration.
The Reds secured the services of Harvey Elliott and Sepp van den Berg in the summer as the club look to build upon an era of continued success
