Liverpool have rejected Southampton’s deadline day move for young defender Neco Williams. Sky Sports claims that Southampton attempted to sign the Welsh right back on loan.
However, their attempts were rebuffed by Liverpool and Williams looks set to stay on Merseyside.
The 19 year-old right back has made 11 first team appearances so far this season. The majority of those have come as a result of England star Trent Alexander-Arnold being injured.
Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhüttl had publicly demanded a new full back following the Saints’ 3-1 loss against Arsenal.
Southampton Football Club have been linked with a host of full backs in the dying embers of the January transfer window. This comes after losing Kyle Walker-Peters to injury.
I will have to ask my doctor, as I don’t know [about Walker-Peters] at the moment. We are hopeful that it will not be too long.Ralph Hasenhüttl on Kyle Walker-Peters Injury
