18-year old Arroyo joined Liverpool from Fortaleza CEIF in January and was immediately loaned out to Real Mallorca in Spain’s third tier Segunda División B.

The Colombia youth international has now agreed a move to Gent, where fellow Liverpool youngster Taiwo Awoniyi is also on loan.

The right-back could gain his first European experience in the Europa League this season, with Gent having drawn 0-0 at home in the first leg of their qualifier against Bordeaux on Thursday.

Meanwhile, Randall will move to Keith Hill’s Rochdale side on a four-month loan.

The 22-year-old full-back made his first-team debut for Liverpool in October 2015 and has since made seven more appearances. He spent last season on loan with Hearts, playing 27 games whilst also joining Shrewsbury Town on loan in early 2015.
