ACCORDING to The Daily Mirror, Liverpool’s promising young defender, Andre Wisdom, is in talks with Wigan Athletic over a proposed season-long loan – after manager Brendan Rodgers left the door to departure open.
Wisdom, who represents England at an Under-21 level, is on Wigan manager Owen Coyle’s radar to help the club push for an immediate return to the Premiership, in a season where the Latics have 46 Championship games as well as their Europa League ties.
Coyle has been interested in Wisdom for a while, however Rodgers was only content to let him leave once he had secured the signings of his defensive targets – and he now seems satisfied after bringing in Mamadou Sakho, Tiago Ilori and Aly Cissokho (season loan) to Anfield.
Wisdom is very proficient at the back, and can play in either a right-back or centre-half position, and Coyle has insisted that he will give the youngster will be given plenty of game time.
Liverpool’s free scoring striker, Daniel Sturridge, has also encouraged the move. Sturridge, who spent some of his career under Coyle whilst at Bolton on loan from Chelsea in 2011, says that he maintains a special relationship with Coyle and has supported Wisdom’s move to the DW Stadium.
