Liverpool right-back Nathaniel Clyne will not have his contract renewed and will be given a free transfer in the summer, according to The Athletic journalist James Pearce.
The reliable reporter was responding to a question about the 28-year-old in a Q&A earlier this week, and he revealed that the fullback will be offloaded:
“Clyne will leave on a free come the end of the season.”
Clyne was signed for £12.5m from Southampton in 2015, but injuries and the emergence of Trent Alexander-Arnold have limited his game time in recent seasons.
The former England international spent the second half of last campaign out on loan at Bournemouth but after returning to the Reds in the summer, he sustained a serious knee injury in a friendly against Borussia Dortmund back in July.
Clyne has yet to return to full fitness, and with the football season having been suspended, it is highly unlikely that the defender will be seen in a Liverpool shirt again before he leaves Anfield
