Liverpool agree deal to loan out Nathaniel Clyne for the remainder of the season

He has only made two starts this season

Liverpool have agreed a deal with AFC Bournemouth that will see Nathaniel Clyne spend the rest of the season on loan at the south coast club.

Clyne has only made five appearances for the Reds this season, three of them coming as a substitute, after losing his place in the first team to Trent Alexander-Arnold.

His only start in the league this season came against Manchester United, when Alexander-Arnold was ruled out through injury. Clyne impressed on his return from injury but could not keep his place in the team.

The right-back's career has been stunted by injuries in recent years - he only made five appearances last season too, the first coming in April 2018 - and will benefit from a run of games at Bournemouth.

Bournemouth's current right-back options include Adam Smith and Simon Francis, but injury problems of their own have seen Junior Stanislas - usually a winger - play as a wing-back for the Cherries in recent matches.

In Clyne's absence, Liverpool's back-up right-back options include James Milner, who spent the majority of the 16/17 season at left-back, Joe Gomez, and in the case of an emergency, Fabinho.
