Liverpool's defensive jam will ease with Ben Davies ready for departure

Defender Ben Davies is set for an imminent exit on loan from Liverpool, it has been confirmed.

Devastated reds

The heart of the club’s rear, of course, turned out to be a major problem area for Jurgen Klopp at Anfield last season.

This came as the Reds were forced to deal with a notable streak of bad luck on the personal front.

First, star cap and talisman Virgil van Dijk was ruled out for the rest of the campaign, after sustaining a serious knee injury in the Merseyside derby last October.

First-choice teammate Joe Gomez quickly joined the Dutchman on the bench, after suffering a long-term knee problem while on international duty a month later.

Yet incredibly, the crisis did not end there, as Joel Matip, the man tasked with leading Liverpool’s defensive ranks in the absence of his two starting center halves, was hit too hard in early February with a serious ankle injury.

In an attempt to alleviate the club’s problems at the rear, the Anfield board subsequently sanctioned a pair of arrivals in January, and Ben Davies and Ozan Kabak were brought in from Preston North End and Schalke respectively.

While the former went on to play a considerable role during the second half of the campaign, Davies, on the other hand, was not allowed a single Premier League appearance.

Knife switch

In turn, it should come as no great surprise to hear that, on Sunday, Liverpool’s unfavorable plug has moved ever closer to the club’s starting gate.

With the new season having seen Klopp’s options at the rear replenished by the big money addition from Ibrahima Konate, along with returns from the aforementioned van Dijk, Gomez and Matip, it all appears well in the red half of Merseyside once. more.

Davies, in turn, has been deemed a surplus of requirements, with an exit now imminent.

According to a report by Goal’s trusty Neil Jones, Sheffield United has agreed to take the 26-year-old on loan for the 2021/22 campaign.

So close is the transfer to materializing, that it could be announced in the next 24 hours:
