Midfielder Naby Keita has left Guinea camp in Egypt for Liverpool to undergo medical checks on injury.

Keita sat out Guinea's 2-0 victory over Burundi at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations on Sunday after picking up a thigh injury in a 1-0 loss to Nigeria last Wednesday.

Daily Mail reports that following the setback, Keita has reported back to Merseyside as he looks to find out the extent of his injury.

"A match that Guinea could play without Naby Keita. Injured against Nigeria, the European champion leaves Egypt tonight for medical consultation in England," read a statement from the country's FA.

"The player should still return to Egypt for the rest of the competition."

Liverpool will be cautious about Keita's latest injury after he also missed the Champions League final with an adductor injury.
