Since the 2020/21 season, former Bolton defender Nathaniel Phillips has been hampered by the main group of center backs and has not received satisfactory playing time. If he stays at Liverpool, he will continue to come off the bench, partly due to the development of Jarell Quansah.
Loan transfers and permanent transfers have been rumored in the annual transfer market, but have failed to materialize. This summer, Leeds United and others were interested, but no deal was finalized until the last day of the transfer deadline, and another loan move is on the way.
According to The Athletic, Liverpool defender Nathaniel Phillips has agreed to a loan move to Celtic. He will first sign a contract until January next year, and the parties involved will discuss whether to extend it during the winter transfer window.
The center back traveled to Glasgow this Wednesday to speak with manager Brendan Rodgers, who is a former Liverpool manager and returned to Celtic this season. The club has had a string of injuries to its defense, and the 26-year-old defender, who has also played in the Premier League, would be an appropriate reinforcement.
First, can he produce results in the first six months and perform in a way that will keep him in Scotland not only after next January, but also next season…?
