Nathaniel Clyne is set to leave Liverpool on a free transfer in the coming weeks, per Football Insider.
The right-back’s contract expires at the end of next month and he has not been offered a short-term extension that would enable him to play for the club until the end of the season.
Clyne is subsequently poised to leave on June 30th despite spending five years at Anfield.
The former Southampton right-back moved to Merseyside in 2015 after the two clubs struck a £12.5 million deal.
The 29-year-old has not played for the Reds at all this season, and spent the second half of last season on loan at AFC Bournemouth.
He has even been informed that he should train alone on Merseyside, as his Reds tenure comes to an end.
GIVEMESPORT’S Harry Sherlock says…
This is just really unfortunate.
Clyne has been an exceptional right-back during his time in the Premier League, making 103 appearances in total for the club.
An England international who has won 14 caps for his country, Clyne has perhaps understandably lost his position to the outstanding Trent Alexander-Arnold.
Joe Gomez can also play at right-back, rendering Clyne somewhat obsolete in the eyes of manager Jurgen Klopp.
Thus, a move makes all the sense in the world and one has to imagine that the defender will have n shortage of suitors in the top-flight; he is a full international, after all, and has plenty of experience.
