Davies set for exit & why linked midfielder won’t sign for Reds – Liverpool FC Roundup

Liverpool are joint-top of the Premier League! Something like that anyway. The mighty Reds are back on the pitch anyway, while off it, sales remain the key plan.


Ben Davies set for Blades loan

He hasn’t yet played a competitive match for the Reds, and it doesn’t look like it’ll be happening any time soon.

Ben Davies, January arrival, is set to return to the Championship with Sheffield United in a loan spell which, interestingly, will not include an option to buy him permanently.

Whether that’s because the Reds value him more highly than the relegated club can spend, or they feel his value will increase more, is p for debate.

Either way, Sky Sports are among those reporting the deal will be confirmed soon and he’s already having a medical at the Bramall Lane club.
