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.
Reds rumours of the day
- Leighton Clarkson is off to Blackburn Rovers for the season and he’s definitely ready for more regular senior action. Hopefully he can emulate Harvey Elliott‘s success last term
- Paul Glatzel was ready mentally and physically for a senior challenge, says Liverpool’s U23 boss, and the loan spell at Tranmere should prove to be a fruitful one for all concerned
- Renato Sanches rumours have been hot and cold all summer but now we can consider it definitely over – he needs surgery and will be sidelined until September at least
