The Exciting Reason Jurgen Klopp Let Nathaniel Clyne Leave On Loan

Nathaniel Clyne became the latest player to move clubs in the January transfer window, much to the annoyance of some Liverpool fans. Those who aren't happy with the move might cheer up a little bit.

It's not that long ago that Nathaniel Clyne was at very least fighting with Kyle Walker to be England's first choice right back and there's every argument to say he was ahead of the then Spurs full back in the pecking order.

The former Southampton full back has since fallen behind Walker, who is now at City, Kieran Trippier and even Trent Alexander-Arnold who's taken his place at Liverpool.

Clyne has only started once all season and made another three appearances as a substitute and he's now moved to Bournemouth on loan till the end of the season.

It seems like good business for Bournemouth, getting an experienced defender in, but Liverpool fans in the main don't seem too happy.

Sure Alexander-Arnold is their main man in the position now but Clyne would have seemed like good back up, however Klopp has someone else in mind.

The manager has a few other options to choose from if Alexander-Arnold isn't available and it seems that includes youngster Ki-Jana Hoever.

It'll certainly be exciting for Liverpool fans to know their manager thinks so highly of the teenager and sees him as genuine cover for the first team.

The 16 year old Dutch defender has already played seven years above his age group for the under 23s and he impressed on debut.

Under 23 manager Neil Critchley said, "I thought his calmness and assurance, his decision-making, his intelligence without the ball, it was terrific. Playing against a good player, I was very impressed with him indeed."

Maybe those fans will be less annoyed now.
