Liverpool transfer news
In the list below, we’ve compiled all you need to know about our new man. So have a read through and – hopefully – get excited about the prospect of seeing him in action for the Reds in just a couple of weeks time, once our pre-season campaign has begun!
- Nathaniel Clyne was born in Stockwell – near London – on 5 April 1991, making him 24 years old.
- Clyne is an out and out right-back who will provide us with the ideal replacement for the departing Glen Johnson, who has left the Reds after six years at Anfield following the expiration of his contract.
- Clyne is an attacking full-back who likes to pick up possession deep and run with the ball down the flank. He tends to play short basses and keeps it simple rather than attempting ambitious cross-field lobs. His tackling is strong as well, although he can be caught out in the air on occasion.
