Ex-Swansea heat of sports science Ryland Morgans has joined up with former colleague Brendan Rodgers at Liverpool, becoming the fourth member of the Northern Irishman's backroom staff to leave the Liberty Stadium.

Morgans' position at Swansea always looked under threat when Michael Laudrup employed Oscar Garcia in the same department during the summer, and the former left the club last week, as reported by the Daily Mail.

He now comes to Anfield to join Rodgers, Chris Davies, performance consultant Glen Driscoll and assistant Colin Pascoe in leaving Swansea for Liverpool after Kenny Dalglish was sacked as Reds boss.

Welsh midfielder Joe Allen also departed the Liberty for Liverpool during the transfer window, joining the Reds for a reported fee of £15 million.

Liverpool, meanwhile, are suffering no fresh injury concerns ahead of Thursday's Europa League meeting with Italian side Udinese.

Rodgers, though, is likely to rest a number of first teamers following the weekend victory against Norwich, and provide some of Liverpool's youngsters with the opportunity to impress.
