Confirmed: 27-year-old Englishman Set to Play at Liverpool Next Season

August 8, 2018

Liverpool have reportedly decided to keep England international full-back Nathaniel Clyne at the club for the upcoming campaign.

The English defender has missed the majority of the most recent season due to a back injury, and he is no longer regarded as a certain starter.

The Merseyside Reds have options in the position with English defender Trent Alexander-Arnold and Joe Gomez both impressing in the role last campaign, however, according to the London Evening Standard, there are currently no plans to part ways with the 27-year-old defender.

Clyne has played an active role during the Reds pre-season programme, with five games coming for the Merseyside giants since the start of July.

Alexander-Arnold is expected to become Jurgen Klopp’s first choice when considered match-fit by head-coach Jurgen Klopp, however, Clyne could get the nod when the Merseyside Reds host West Ham United on Sunday afternoon.

The 27-year-old defender currently has two years left on his current deal at the club and he is unlikely to depart from Anfield and fight for starting spot this term.
