Report: Cardiff keen on Clyne

With the mid-season transfer window about to open in the next 24 hours, there will be plenty of speculation about who may be arriving or departing the club during the month of January. 

While top clubs tend to shy away from purchases during this time as transfer fees are greatly inflated, for teams who have purely got survival on their minds, a signing or two could make all the difference.

Cardiff manager Neil Warnock is one manager who has made his interest known in one of our players, that being Nathaniel Clyne.

Once seen as ' Mr Consistent' the English international has become one of the forgotten men of the Liverpool line-up in the last two seasons for a number of reasons.
 

The emergence of Joe Gomez and Trent-Alexander-Arnold as regulars in the back four, combined with a number of long term injuries to Clyne which in turn led to a lack of confidence on his return, has seen the 27 year-old on the outside looking in.

To his great credit and undoubted professionalism when called upon in a time of need, the right-back performed to a high standard in the clash against Man United with both Alexander-Arnold and Gomez sidelined by injury.

The wily Warnock had sensed a real possibility to sign Clyne, but speaking to Sky Sports says that he doesn't know where things currently stand.

"We spoke about Clyne months ago, but then he got back into the Liverpool team against Manchester United, then they had a few injuries, so things change.

"But honestly, we've got nothing set for any position at the moment, I'm hoping that changes this week."

"We've got nine or 10 concrete enquiries in at the moment, obviously we're not going to sign them all.

"People might think, 'I don't want to go to a team at the bottom of the table' but it's difficult to bring players in"

A player like Clyne who has made just 10 senior appearances in the last 18 months would naturally be desperate to get some sustained senior football under his belt.

But as we had recently seen, a couple of injuries can happen in a instant and change the whole scenario.

As a team who is on a quest to win the Premier League, you normally would only let players go at this time of the season who need more senior experience (e.g. Dom Solanke).

A seasoned pro like Clyne can certainly play a role, and unless he knocks on Jurgen Klopp's door desperate to leave the club, it would be doubtful that the German would let him go during this window.

We'd be mad to let him go before the end of the season. Once June arrives, no problem but no way should any senior player be leaving here while we're in a title race.

I see no reason to let him go. We have a great opportunity this season and need every man available to cover. For the sake of 5 months it would be quite a stupid move. 

 

Exactly.

 

We haven't used Solanke at all this season, and he is in need of game time so a loan makes sense. Everyone else has played a part this season, however minor, and we need them to be ready to play a part again if required.

Cardiff and anyone else can fuck off until the summer as far as Clyne goes 

 

Solanke is a different story - he has no chance and is clearly behind even Sturridge and Origi and probably Brewster when he comes back which is soon.

And have Bert Moron on a lead as he does.

Letting Klavan go is already sailing very close to the wind and this would be even more so.

 

Wouldn’t have Moreno anywhere near the side in any crunch games because we’ve seen what happens.

 

No way we should even consider this in January. Just not worth taking any risks with the stakes so high.

Crazy to even think about it so I don't believe for one minute we are.  Robertson has been looking a bit below par lately and may need a rest after the City game. Clyne is a better bet than Moreno to do that job

Are current fullback options are TAA, Robertson, Gomez, Milner, Fabinho and Clyne. 

 

Clyne is unlikely to get a run of games here, but we are low on defensive options at the moment. I would think we will wait until the end of the window before we decide. If we are out of the Fa cup, and back to full strength I would let Clyne go on loan personally. I'm sure he could do better than Cardiff though.
