Liverpool are letting England under-21 defender Andre Wisdom go to Steve McClaren’s Derby County on loan.

McClaren made an approach for highly-rated Wisdom - who can play at right back or centre half - despite his side’s big win at Watford.

Wisdom has been available to go out for games for a few weeks and Brendan Rodgers is happy for him to go to the Rams for action.

McClaren wanted 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.
