Report: Liverpool using Andre Wisdom as Will Hughes makeweight

Liverpool reportedly hope to put themselves in pole position to sign Derby starlet Will Hughes by loaning Andre Wisdom out to the Rams.

Liverpool are reported planning to loan out Andre Wisdom to Derby County as a way of prompting transfer negotiations over their highly-rated midfielder Will Hughes.

Reports have emerged that Wisdom is a target of new Rams boss Steve McClaren, who is keen to add the 20-year-old to an injury-depleted defence that has failed to keep a clean sheet in their last nine games.

The England Under-21 captain is expected to complete a short-term move to Pride Park this week, and the Daily Star claims that Liverpool hope to use their loaning of Wisdom to Derby as a makeweight in a potential deal for Hughes.

The talented 18-year-old has been linked with Arsenal, Manchester United and Manchester City, so the Reds are seemingly trying to do everything in their power to put them in a favourable position to sign him.

Hughes has made 50 Championship appearances for Derby, scoring four times since debuting in 2011.
