Liverpool had to make some snap decisions last season. The Reds were lacking numbers at the back so we had to make do with some short term fixes. One of our makeshift moves could be on his way out. Liverpool sending Ben Davies out on loan is a genius move as it’ll only increase his value.
Liverpool sign Ben Davies
Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip all suffered season ending injuries last season.
The Reds were forced to drop Fabinho and Jordan Henderson into the back line with Rhys Williams and Nat Phillips called up.
On deadline day in February we saw two players arrive.
Ozan Kabak was brought in on loan from Schalke whilst Ben Davies was signed from Preston North End.
The Bundesliga defender became a regular fixture whilst the ex-Championship star failed to make a single competitive appearance.
Ben Davies loan this summer
The Reds could be set to send their February recruit away this summer.
According to a report by Goal, Liverpool are willing to let Ben Davies leave on loan.
There is said to be interest from Bournemouth, Celtic and Sheffield United.
The Blades have allegedly already had a loan enquiry rebuffed by the Reds.
This is believed to be because Michael Edwards was against an option to buy clause.
Genius financial move
This is a smart plan from Michael Edwards.
Sending Ben Davies out on loan will see his value increase.
He hasn’t played during his time with the Reds and as a result buyers could expect a discount.
If he heads out on loan and puts in an impressive season we can command a higher fee next summer.
At just 25-years-old he’s nowhere near his prime, a campaign strutting his stuff will show buyers what more there is to come from him.
Selling him in a year is sure to be better for us in the long term.
