Liverpool are looking to send young defender Rhys Williams on loan to Swansea City, according to reports from The Atheltic.

The 20-year-old was brilliant last season for the Reds, with Jurgen Klopp hailing him as an ‘incredible’ talent.

The youngster was thrown into the mix as Liverpool were without Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip for almost the entire season.

With Liverpool bolstering their defence this summer by adding Ibrahima Konate from RB Leipzig and all senior players returning to full fitness, Williams will drop down the pecking order.

However, he is a fantastic young talent and needs to play games to further his development. A loan move to Swansea in the Championship would be ideal.

The Athletic claim that a deal is currently being negotiated between the two clubs for Wiliams, who made 19 first-team appearances last season.

The youngster made his debut for Liverpool against Lincoln City in the Carabao Cup last September.

He subsequently appeared as a late substitute against Ajax in the Champions League a month later.

The 20-year-old performed admirably in a 2-0 win against FC Midtjylland in the group stage and later partnered Nathaniel Phillips as Liverpool won their final five league games to get into the top four.
