DANNY WILSON’S Liverpool career is over after the defender joined Hearts on loan for the rest of the season.
The 21-year-old centre-back is out of contract this summer and hasn’t been offered a new deal.
Wilson cost the Reds £2million from Rangers in 2010 but struggled to impress at Anfield. The last of his nine appearances came against Brighton in the League Cup back in September 2011.
He had a spell on loan at Blackpool last season and on his return vowed to force his way into new manager Brendan Rodgers’ plans.
However, Wilson remained a long way down the pecking order and was an unused substitute on three occasions before joining Bristol City on a two-month emergency loan in November.
He played just one game for the Championship club and has now returned to his homeland in search of regular football.
The Scotland international could make his Hearts debut away to Celtic today and if he impresses over the coming months the transfer is likely to become permanent.
Wilson is the third player to leave Liverpool this month following the departures of Joe Cole and Nuri Sahin.
Rodgers admits his squad needs strengthening and is hopeful of adding to the acquisition of £12million striker Daniel Sturridge.
West Brom are one of a number of clubs keen to take Sebastian Coates on loan for the rest of the season but Rodgers won’t let the Uruguayan go until he has brought in another defender.
Reports suggesting Liverpool are lining up a deal for Lazio centre-back Modibo Diakite are wide of the mark.
Club officials expect today’s Premier League clash with Norwich City at Anfield to go ahead despite the heavy snowfall.
The undersoil heating means there is no problem with the pitch and the council have treated all roads around the ground so Liverpool are confident there won’t be any safety issues.
Liverpool Under-18s’ home game with West Brom today has been postponed.
