Villa and Liverpool agree Ilori loan

Liverpool have reached agreement with Aston Villa for the season-long loan of defender Tiago Ilori.

The 22-year-old defender has yet to make a senior appearance for the Reds since his £7 million move from Sporting Lisbon two years ago.

Liverpool are keen for the Portugal Under-21 international to head out on loan in order for him to play first-team football and the Premier League deal sheet has been submitted and the clubs have until 8pm to complete the paperwork.

With Martin Skrtel, Dejan Lovren, Kolo Toure and Mamadou Sakho ahead of him in the pecking order at Anfield, Brendan Rodgers feels his development would be helped by playing elsewhere.
