Former England international Nathaniel Clyne is set to leave Liverpool this winter according to the Daily Mail. His destination, however, is undecided with Premier League duo Bournemouth and Cardiff City keen to take the player on loan.

Cardiff boss Neil Warnock knows 27-year-old from their time together at Crystal Palace. The much-travelled boss gave Clyne his debut as a professional in 2008.

Warnock is keen to reunite with the defender who would bring 350 games-worth of experience into his resurgent squad. The Bluebirds suffered their first defeat in three games but remain outside the bottom three.

However, their hopes of adding the full-back to their squad are receding with Bournemouth declaring their interest. Eddie Howe has been hit by a minor injury crisis with both Adam Smith and Simon Francis set for long spells on the sidelines.

Howe will hope Bournemouth’s comparatively lofty heights in the Premier League and a reputation for being a footballing side will count in the Cherries favour.

Clyne is seeing little first team action this season with Trent Alexander-Arnold cementing his place in the Liverpool starting line-up. The young England man is battling with James Milner and Joe Gomez for right-back, leaving former Southampton man Clyne on the periphery.
