Cape Town - Nathaniel Clyne is the second player to depart Liverpool in the January transfer window, with the England full-back joining Bournemouth on loan until the end of the season.

The 27-year-old links up with former Reds team-mate Dominic Solanke at Bournemouth, with the striker having sealed a permanent move to the Vitality Stadium on Friday in a £19m deal.

Clyne missed the majority of Liverpool's 2017/18 campaign with a back injury, and has found his first-team opportunities limited this season, making just five first-team appearances under Jurgen Klopp.

He will undoubtedly relish the chance for regular first-team action in a Cherries side currently in 12th place, just one point behind 10th-placed West Ham United.

"I'm really excited by this opportunity. It's a great chance for me to come and play football," Clyne said.

"It's a great club with a great story. I can't wait to get going."

Clyne joined Liverpool from Southampton for £12.5m in 2015, and has gone on to feature 103 times in all competitions, scoring twice and providing five assists.
