Liverpool defender joins Sheffield on loan

Sheffield United have signed Liverpool defender Ben Davies on a season-long loan.

Davies, 26, has not made a first-team appearance for Liverpool since he joined from Preston on a long-term contract in February in a £1.6m deal.

The centre-back is Sheffield United manager Slavisa Jokanovic’s first signing since being appointed in May following the club’s relegation from the Premier League.
