The offloading of unnecessary players continues.
This time, it is Phillip’s turn.
Liverpool youngster Nathaniel Phillips has returned to German side Stuttgart on loan until the end of the season. Phillips had been with the Mercedes-Benz-Arena side at the start of the campaign but returned to Anfield earlier this month to take part in Liverpool’s FA Cup third round clash with Everton.
But following that win, the club have opted to allow the 22-year-old to go back to Die Roten until May. An official statement from Liverpool read: “Nathaniel Phillips has returned to Stuttgart on loan until the end of the season. The Liverpool centre-back initially joined the German side on a temporary basis in August; however, he was recalled to the Reds at the start of January.
“Phillips subsequently completed the 90 minutes of the FA Cup third-round victory over Everton at Anfield earlier this month, marking his first competitive appearance for the club. Liverpool and Stuttgart have now reached an agreement that will see the 22-year-old return to spend the remainder of the current campaign with the 2.Bundesliga outfit, for whom he clocked up 11 runouts in all competitions in the first half of the season.”
