Liverpool defender Andre Wisdom has joined Norwich on a season-long loan.

The 22-year-old, who signed a new long-term deal with the Reds in May, made 24 Premier League appearances during a spell on loan at West Brom in 2014-15.

Wisdom came through the youth system at Liverpool and also spent a season at Derby in 2013-14.

Norwich boss Alex Neil said on the club's website: "I'm delighted as Andre fits our profile in terms of getting hungry players in who want to make their way in the game. He's also had Premier League experience with a few different clubs, so we're happy to get it over the line. It will add to the competition for places as he's a flexible player.

"In the past he's played centre-back and right-back. Having added competition to the left-hand side with Robbie Brady, it was important to add something to the right side as well."

Wisdom is looking for regular first-team football but new arrival Joe Gomez impressed on Liverpool's recent tour to Asia and Australia to move up the pecking order.
