Coady makes loan move

Young Liverpool midfielder Conor Coady has joined League One side Sheffield United on a six-month loan deal.

Coady, who captained England at the Under-20 World Cup in Turkey in June, graduated from the Anfield youth set-up.

The 20-year-old, born in Liverpool, will play at Bramall Lane under David Weir, who was the reserve-team coach at Everton until he was appointed United manager on June 10.

Coady has made two senior appearances for Liverpool, both under Brendan Rodgers last season.

He was handed a debut in a 1-0 Europa League group stage defeat away to Anzhi Makhachkala on November 8 last year, and made his first Premier League appearance in a 3-1 win at Fulham on May 12.

Weir told Sheffield United’s official club website: "I’ve been aware of Conor's talents for a long time, through his development with Liverpool and England - and he is a great prospect.

"He will add competition for places in the midfield and will be an asset for us."
