Nathaniel Clyne has made a loan move to Bournemouth in a search for regular first-team football after failing to return to the Liverpool side due to impressive form from Trent Alexander-Arnold.

The 27-year-old was a regular fixture for Klopp's side before his long-term injury and had even broken in to the England set-up, but his return has been a frustrating one - leading to this loan move.

Bournemouth have been in terrible form after an impressive start this season, currently sitting in 12th position with 27 points.

The move seemed to go through rather smoothly with little hassle from either party, however another club who were interested in the defender seems to have been led up the garden path as far as negotiations are concerned.

Neil Warnock - manager of Cardiff City - has revealed an astonishing piece of information that does not paint Liverpool or Nathaniel Clyne in a great light.

Warnock - who managed Clyne when in charge of Crystal Palace - has vented his frustration with the player due to their relationship at the Eagles after being promised by Liverpool that Clyne was to be a Cardiff player.

"Having known the player and given him his debut, I'm disappointed not just with the boy himself but with Liverpool as well for not ringing me.

"To see it on television when I've done everything right and they've promised that he's my player this week, it's a disgrace for me, it's a lack of class isn't it?"

At 70 years of age, Warnock has made it clear he is not going to let it manifest into anything further and realises his side are at their best with their back against the wall.

"We're not going to get any favours, whether it's on the pitch or off it and we're always up against it and that's when we're good.

"I probably should have been illegally tapping him, but I've done everything right and then Bournemouth come in and I suppose Bournemouth paying £19million for (Dominic) Solanke probably whetted their appetite a little bit."


This revelation certainly makes us wonder as football fans how often these petty transfer situations go under the radar.
