Tiago Ilori is to spend the season on loan at Granada. The Liverpool defender, 20, signed from Sporting Lisbon for £7million on transfer deadline day but moves to the Liga side having yet to make a first-team appearance. The arrival of £18m Mamadou Sakho on the same day as Ilori, in addition to Daniel Agger, Martin Skrtel and Kolo Toure already being established, made central defence one of Liverpool's most competitive positions.
