Clyne joins Bournemouth on loan

AFC Bournemouth and Liverpool have agreed a deal that will see Nathaniel Clyne move to the south of England for the rest of the season.

Having spent four seasons with Crystal Palace and three with Southampton, the defender joined Liverpool in 2015 for a fee of £12.5 million on a five-year contract. He was one of the most regular names on the teamsheet throughout his first two seasons at Anfield, making a total of 93 appearances in that time.

However, injuries hampered his efforts at the start of 2017/18, and having now recovered, the 27-year-old has found himself behind youngsters Trent Alexander-Arnold and Joe Gomez in the pecking order. He started only one Premier League game this season, against Manchester United, and even though he put in an excellent performance, manager Klopp reinstated Alexander-Arnold into the starting XI as soon as the England international recovered from a foot problem.

With the Cherries in need of defensive reinforcements, Clyne goes there in search of game-time.
