Wisdom enjoyed a successful spell on loan at Derby County last season and Rodgers is ready to loan him out again so that he can continue his development.

West Brom are in the market for a new right-back after seeing Billy Jones and Steven Reid leave the Hawthorns this summer, and they have moved to agree a deal for England Under 21 international Wisdom.

Speaking after Liverpool's 2-1 pre-season win over Preston, Rodgers confirmed Wisdom was set to link up with the Baggies.

  

"After today, Andre is going to go on loan to West Brom," Rodgers told Liverpool's official website. "He had a very successful period at Derby last year, he did very well under Steve McClaren.

"He now has the opportunity to go to another very good coach in Alan Irvine, who I know from my youth days. He is an excellent coach and West Brom are an excellent club.

"West Brom have been a rising club for the last few years in the Premier League. He'll go there and it will be another chance for his education and development to continue.

"He'll join up with them sooner rather than later and spend the season there on loan. That will be another step for him in his development, playing regularly in the Premier League."

t's wrong to be making a joke out of Bender's name at the expense of gay people. It's the kind of childish, uncivilised thing that Football365 would deride and ridicule if it was another media outlet saying. Why is there a need for jokes like this? Does it make your writers feel like men? F365 might suggest that I 'lighten up', but it is genuinely traumatic for people who have been oppressed all their lives to be the butt of jokes, and to be told...

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
