Liverpool defender Andre Wisdom joins West Brom on loan
The England Under-21 international will play at the Hawthorns for the season
Tuesday 22 July 2014
Andre Wisdom has become West Brom's sixth signing of the summer courtesy of Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers singing the defender's praises.
England Under-21 international Wisdom has joined new head coach Alan Irvine's side on a season-long loan from Anfield.
Wisdom scored on his Liverpool debut in a 5-3 Europa League win over Swiss side Young Boys in September 2012, going on to make a further 18 appearances that season.
Following three appearances for the Reds at the start of last season, the 21-year-old then joined Derby on loan for the season, starting 38 games, including the Sky Bet Championship play-off final defeat to QPR.
Capable of playing at right-back or centre-back, and going on Rodgers' word, Irvine said: "I've spoken to Brendan, who I've known for a very long time and who I trust implicitly.
"He said Andre would do a good job for us. That was reassuring.
"You can see the player, but you want to find out what they are like as a person. Brendan spoke very, very highly about him."
