Ben Davies deal explained as Liverpool defender prepares for loan

Ben Davies appear to be set to grant Sheffield United on loan and Liverpool have outlined the terms of the deal including a potential promotion bonus.

It is understood that there will be no option to buy the 26-year-old – with the Reds looking to keep their options open regarding the former Preston defender – while the Blades will also pay loan fees, as well as an additional amount if the club gets a return to the Premier League.

Davies made his Liverpool “debut” as a late replacement in the recent friendly with Osasuna, having already played for eight Reds sides last season.

It had also sparked interest from Celtic, Bournemouth and Burnley, but new Sheffield United boss Slavisa Jokanovic was eager to secure the deal.

Speaking on Sky Sports following Manchester City’s loss to Tottenham, Souness highlighted the main difference between the current squad and the Liverpool side that won the title in 2019/20.

“I think it was very easy to watch Liverpool and talk about their first three and say how special they were, but I think a lot of their great play came from the three midfielders.

“[Gini] Wijnaldum is gone, [Jordan] Henderson is a year older, James Milner a year older.

“I would like to see something else in midfield. It’s going to be a long, difficult season.

When asked who would finish better between Liverpool and Manchester United, Gary Neville said he couldn’t separate the two sides – but pointed to the same issue as Souness.

“I think Liverpool will miss Wijnaldum and need a midfielder,” he said.
