Andre heads out to gain more wisdom.
Young Liverpool defender Andre Wisdom is set to join Championship side Derby County on loan as he looks to earn more playing time after falling down the pecking order at Anfield, the Mirror reports.
The 20-year-old had been watched numerous times by new County boss Steve McLaren and the former England manager made an enquiry for his services after this weekend’s victory over Watford.
Brendan Rodgers had made the England under-21 international available for a short term move some weeks ago, and is now happy for him to head to Pride Park to get some much needed game time under his belt.
McClaren had been wanting to bring in a new defender from the day he arrived, and the chance to snap up Wisdom for the rest of the year is a major boost for his squad.
Derby are eighth in the Championship, having won 18 points from 12 games and are hoping to bring in an extra body at the back to shore up and help the side recover from their sluggish start to the season.
Wisdom first broke into the Liverpool side last season and wracked up an impressive 19 appearances across all competitions, but hasn’t been able to build on that this term and has featured just twice.
