Andre Wisdom set to join Norwich City on loan

Published 5 Comments

Andre Wisdom is close to joining Norwich City on a season-long loan, reports the Liverpool Echo. 

Wisdom joined the Reds as a schoolboy at 14-years-old from Bradford City and come through the club's ranks in Kirkby and captained Liverpool's youth team to the FA Cup Youth Cup final in 2009.

The England Under 21s international was handed his debut by Brendan Rodgers in September 2012 against Young Boys in the Europa League and netted in the 5-3 victory.

For the past two season's, Wisdom has been loaned out to Derby County and West Bromwich Albion and Rodgers is keen for the 22-year-old to get more Premier League experience.

Norwich are set to pay £1.25 million for the 22-year-old's services as they look to fight for survival in the top flight. The Canaries were relegated from the Premier League in 2014, however, went straight back-up after beating Middlesbrough 2-0 in the play-off final last May.

There is plenty of competition for right-back at Liverpool which is the main reason why Wisdom has been allowed to leave on loan.

Nathaniel Clyne signed for £12 million from Southampton earlier this month and he'll likely be Rodgers' first choice for the role. Clyne has been one of the league's best full-backs in the past two season's and has become an England international regular.

The Merseyside outfit have also signed Joe Gomez for £3.5 million from Charlton Athletic. He was relatively unknown to football fans, however, was chased by Arsenal and Borrusia Dortmund this summer but chose Anfield instead.

Jon Flanagan was a key member of Rodgers' squad when they went within a whisker of winning the Premier League title. He missed the whole of last season with a knee injury and has had to undergo further surgery and will be side-lined for the majority of his campaign. Flanagan is popular amongst his manager and the fans being a local player and will be used heavily on his return.


Despite Wisdom heading out on loan for the third successive season, he is part of Rodgers' plans.

He signed a new four-year contract with Liverpool in May and, if he has success at Norwich, could become a regular at Anfield next campaign.
