Rodgers Ready To Let Defender Go

Liverpool youngster Andre Wisdom looks set to spend the coming season out on loan from Anfield, with both Wigan Athletic and Fulham interested in the player, according to reports.

According to The Sunday People, Brendan Rodgers is keen for his starlet to experience regular first-team football so he can return to Merseyside a better player.

The Yorkshire lad has benefitted from Liverpool’s lack of depth in defence over the past two seasons, and has made more appearances for the club than he could have possibly expected at the tender age of 20.

Wisdom has made 19 starts for the Reds since his debut in 2010, but now club boss Rodgers is determined he plays week in-week out to gain the know-how of being a consistent starter at the top level.

Of the two clubs that have expressed interest, it looks as if Wisdom may be more likely to join relegated Wigan, who can offer the slightly decelerated level of Championship football, as well as the thrill of Europe, a privilege which they attained after winning the FA Cup in May.

Rodgers hopes his adaptable defender will return ready to become a natural replacement to Glen Johnson in the Reds’ right-back role.
