Where should unwanted Liverpool defender Clyne go in January?

Nathaniel Clyne is edging towards a Liverpool exit in January. But where should he go?

A host of clubs have been alerted to Nathaniel Clyne’s availability in the January transfer window.

Liverpool have frozen Clyne out this season and a January move makes sense for him to reignite his stalling career.

According to a report by The Sun, Cardiff City, Fulham and Leicester City are in a three-horse race for the right-back.

Clyne could be available on loan and this Premier League trio are keen on adding him to their squad.

The 27-year-old, who has not played a competitive game all season, has options on the table in the new year.

But which club should he decide to join?

At Cardiff and Fulham, he is likely to be involved in a relegation battle. But game time should be expected at these two clubs.

 

Under Neil Warnock at Cardiff, Clyne would play as a right-wing-back, which suits his attack-minded approach.

And he could be forced further forward at Fulham, too, with new boss Claudio Ranieri trialling out his system.

At Leicester, Clyne could be involved in a push for the European spots but has to compete with Daniel Amartey and Ricardo Pereira.

If Clyne’s January move is just a loan deal, then he needs to prioritise his playing time over the club’s short-term ambition.

Fulham gives him the chance to play under Ranieri and move back to London – this is probably his best option.
