AFC Bournemouth have agreed a deal to sign Liverpool defender Nathaniel Clyne on loan until the end of the season.

That’s according to the Evening Standard, who write that the full-back will move to the Vitality Stadium having fallen out of favour at Anfield.

The 27-year-old has made just four Premier League appearances for Jurgen Klopp’s men this season following the emergence of Trent Alexander-Arnold in his position.

The Englishman joined the Reds in the summer of 2015 after an impressive few years at Southampton, where he established himself as a Premier League right-back.

Cherries boss Eddie Howe is in desperate need of recruits in that position, with both Simon Francis and Adam Smith facing lengthy injury lay-offs.

He was forced to deploy winger/striker Junior Stanislas in that area of the pitch in the 3-3 draw with Watford, which perhaps played a part in the number of goals the Cherries conceded that day.

Clyne is under contract in the North West until 2020, and it is understood that Bournemouth will have no option to buy the player upon the conclusion of the loan deal.
