Benjamin Keith Davies (Ben Davies) will be joining the relegated Sheffield United on a season-long loan for the 2021-22 campaign.
The Liverpool defender has not even played a single minute in any competitive competition for the Reds so far. Davies was brought to Anfield in January alongside Ozan Kabak to fill the holes left by the injury crises. However, the former Preston North End defender himself became the victim and thus eventually ended up joining the injury list.
With the likes of Virgil van Dijk, Joel Matip, Joe Gomez, and the new signing Ibrahima Konate, it was always going to be a tough path for Ben Davies to make it to the first team. Thus, the recently turned 26-years-old affirmed that gaining some playing time and moving to Bramall Lane will be good for his career.
