Loan Watch: Blackpool sign Danny Wilson on loan

on 01.01.2012

Liverpool have loaned Scottish defender Danny Wilson to Championship side Blackpool for the rest of the season.

Wilson, 20, signed for Liverpool from Glasgow Rangers in July 2010 for £2m but has struggled to make the breakthrough into the first team.

In fact, he has made more appearances for his country than his club this season, with his only appearance for Liverpool being the League Cup match at Exeter. Last season he made 8 appearances, mostly in the Europa League and mostly at left back as opposed to his natural position of centre back.

Seemingly Liverpool and Blackpool have a good relationship of late; having loaned Jonjo Shelvey earlier this season where the midfielder enjoyed a succesful spell before returning to Anfield earlier following Lucas’ long-term injury.

The Seasiders also have former Reds youngsters Thomas Ince and Gerardo Bruna.

Ian Holloway’s side are currently 9th, four points outside the play-off places.

Meanwhile, striker David Amoo has extended his loan spell at Bury for the rest of the season.
