What's next for Liverpool's Ben Davies after his loan spell?

The Liverpool defender joined Sheffield United on a season-long loan but will return to the Reds in the summer as things stand.

According to the Star, Davies is ” likely to rejoin his parent clubs in May” and with it unlikely he will ever make it into the Liverpool starting XI, he will likely be looking for a new club in the summer.

His move to Liverpool was a really odd one. Signed during the injury crisis last season, he was expected to make at least a handful of appearances, but Jurgen Klopp chose to stick with Ozan Kabak, Rhys Williams and the fearless Nat Phillips.

It turned out to be an inspired decision as Phillips and Williams carried Liverpool into the top three last season and now, with the Reds flying in Europe, they could be remembered very fondly if Klopp guides them to the Champions League title this season.

Given that Liverpool are shaky in defence but absolutely sensational going forward, there is a strong chance that the Anfield outfit ends up going all the way in Europe this season.

They were drawn into the so-called “Group of Death” with Porto, AC Milan and Atletico Madrid but have qualified for the Round of 16 already, with four wins from four and 13 goals scored.

As for Davies, I’m not sure what he was told when he signed for the club or what he’s been told since, but it’s obvious that he isn’t going to start ahead of Joe Gomez and Ibrahima Konate, let alone Virgil van Dijk and Joel Matip.

He didn’t start ahead of Phillips last term when the aforementioned were injured, while Konate hadn’t even joined the club yet, so I am curious to see how the next year pans out for him.
