Loan Watch: Blackpool sign Danny Wilson on loan


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.

    Good news he needs competitive football and the championship is a good place to go, I’d like to see Shelvey go back on loan to Blackpool again too for the rest of the season,he knows he’d get plenty of time on the pitch there too.

    It’s good news for him, from what I’ve seen of him both in his first team appearances (admittedly where he was played out of position) and while watching reserve games, I don’t think he’s ready to step up and make a regular contribution with the 1st team.  There was talk of him going back to scotland but I think it’s better for his development that the loan move is to the championship, which I think is of a generally higher standard than the SPL & it’s certainly a lot more competitive.  Shelvey rated his experience with Blackpool so let’s hope Wilson takes it for the opportunity it is & the move aids his development.

    I agree with what you are saying mate, I also beleive there is coulture barrier here also. Secondly I dont believe evra to be inocent either, he has been known to give faulse evidence before. I say give saurez more protection during a game referees, instead of letting oposition defenders kicking him up and down the pitch, because that seems to be the only wae to stop him, I think the english fa should address this before or after saurez gets banned. On this subject im sad that kk hasnt picked up on this aswel. ywna

    Good to let him have the exposure like Shelvey did but why we we still want to buy Gary Cahill, Coates and Carra are waiting in the wings.
