Liverpool are set to send defender Andre Wisdom on-loan to Derby County, according to a report in the Mirror today.
However, when Glen Johnson picked up a high ankle sprain in Liverpool’s 1-0 victory over Manchester Utd earlier this season, the stops were put on Wisdom’s departure.
The England Under-21 captain could spend the rest of the season on-loan at Pride Park and will join a number of Reds playing for other clubs this season.
The Mirror report:
McClaren made an approach for highly-rated Wisdom – who can play at right back or centre half – despite his side’s big win at Watford.
Wisdom has made 22 appearances for Liverpool’s first team, scoring 1 goal.
The move would also be seen as a sweetener for reported Liverpool target, Derby midfielder Will Hughes.
Derby are 8th in the Championship with 18 points from their first 12 games, having beaten Watford away 3-2 in their last game.
