Race to sign Liverpool outcast gathers pace as Celtic and Sheffield United face fresh Championship interest

Bournemouth have joined the hunt to sign Ben Davies, according to Daily Mail reporter Dominic King.

The Liverpool defender is facing an uncertain future after falling down the pecking order at Anfield under current head coach Jurgen Klopp.

The 25-year-old only joined the Premier League giants back in January but is yet to make a first team appearance for the club after being brought in as something of a backup option due to the injury problems suffered by the likes of Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip.

As a result Davies is thought to be available for a move this summer with interest from the Championship mounting.

Reports from Football Insider have claimed that Sheffield United are one of the clubs who are keen on a move for the player, while Scottish giants Celtic are also said to be keen on making a move for the former Preston talisman.

But while the Blades are said to have had a loan enquiry turned down by Liverpool for the defender, King has also revealed that Bournemouth are now in the race to sign the player as interest builds in his services.

Discussing his situation, King said of Davies: “Celtic, Sheffield United and Bournemouth, meanwhile, all interested in signing Ben Davies. Sheff United have had an initial loan enquiry turned down.”

The verdict

Ben Davies certainly isn’t going to be short of offers this summer.

Few can blame the defender for jumping at the chance to move to Liverpool when the opportunity arose in January but things simply haven’t worked out.

Davies is far too good to be rotting in the reserves at Anfield and so a move away seems like an ideal step to help him to play some regular first team football.

Where he’ll end up remains to be seen, but given the options on the table, I’m sure he’ll be gearing up for a big season.
