Wisdom set for loan deal


Liverpool defender Andre Wisdom is being linked with a move to Fulham as they look to take him on a season-long loan.

The highly-rated defender made 17 appearances for the first team last season but Brendan Rodgers wants him to get some regular action and gain more experience and has suggested he, and a number of other Reds youngsters, may be sent out on loan.

Wisdom performed admirably having been thrown in at the deep end and Rodgers is keen for him to continue his development by playing more this season.

Fulham could be an option for Wisdom as Cottagers boss Martin Jol is looking for cover across the back line after utility man Chris Baird was released at the end of last season.

Wisdom has a long-term contract with the Reds, making a permanent deal unlikely, but Jol should get a positive response if he goes ahead with plans to offer to take the defender on loan.
