REPORT: German Side In ‘Advanced Talks’ To Sign Liverpool Defender With Deal Likely To Be Done By Friday

An unnamed German club are in “advanced talks” to sign Liverpool defender Sepp van den Berg on loan until the end of the season, according to the Football Insider.

There have been reports in recent days that the Dutchman has attracted interest from teams in Bundesliga 2, the Swiss Super League and the Belgian Pro League but it seems the 19-year-old will be making the temporary move to Germany.

Van den Berg’s switch is thought to be very close to being finalised with the Football Insider claiming that a deal could be completed as early as Friday.

The centre-half has not made a single first-team appearance for the Reds this season, despite the club’s injury crisis in the centre of defence. The likes of Rhys Williams and Nat Phillips have been favoured ahead of him by manager Jurgen Klopp, and it is felt that he needs to leave Anfield in order to gain more experience.
