Liverpool Defensive Star Agrees Loan Deal With Bournemouth Until The End Of The Season

Nathaniel Clyne is set to move to Bournemouth for the rest of the season
Nathaniel Clyne is set to move to Bournemouth for the rest of the season

Liverpool defender Nathaniel Clyne is set to leave Anfield for the remainder of the season and join fellow Premier League club Bournemouth on loan for the rest of the season.

As Jurgen Klopp mulls over last night's 2-1 defeat to Manchester City, he has elected to let Clyne depart the club and move to the south coast, as the former Southampton defender tries to get more game time in the top-flight.

Trent Alexander-Arnold's emergence in the Liverpool first team over the last couple of season has seen Clyne drop down the pecking order at the Merseyside club, and he has been starved of any significant playing time all this season, so a move to Bournemouth could work for both parties.

Eddie Howe will relish the arrival of Clyne as the Cherries have been struggling in the Premier League in recent weeks, and the 27-year-old experienced defensive star will help out a Cherries defensive rearguard that has conceded 12 goals in three matches.

It was announced last week that Bournemouth defender Simon Francis will be out for nine months, so Clyne's arrival will ease the worry for Howe, who will look to strengthen more as the January transfer window continues.

It's already been rumoured that striker Jermain Defoe could be on his way to Rangers from Bournemouth, but Howe will be glad to get a significant performer into his mis-firing squad, and Clyne will now look to cement a spot in the Cherries defence and show that he can still do a job in the full-back position.
