Wisdom set for West Brom loan

Wisdom enjoyed a successful spell on loan with Championship side Derby last season and Rodgers is keen to loan him out again to continue his development.

West Brom are in the transfer window looking for a new right-back after seeing Billy Jones and Steven Reid leave the club this summer, and have already looked at the England U21 defender as the replacement.

Speaking after Liverpool’s 2-1 win over Preston yesterday, Brenden Rodgers said: “After today, Andre is going to go on loan to West Brom,” Rodgers told Liverpool’s official website. “He had a very successful period at Derby last year, he did very well under Steve McClaren.

“He now has the opportunity to go to another very good coach in Alan Irvine, who I know from my youth days. He is an excellent coach and West Brom are an excellent club.

“West Brom have been a rising club for the last few years in the Premier League. He’ll go there and it will be another chance for his education and development to continue.

“He’ll join up with them sooner rather than later and spend the season there on loan. That will be another step for him in his development, playing regularly in the Premier League.”
