Nathaniel Clyne: Still feeling positive

Liverpool are in talks to sell Nathaniel Clyne back to former club Crystal Palace, seven years after he left Selhurst Park.

We exclusively revealed earlier this month that Palace were interested in Clyne, and now the Daily Mail report that the two clubs have entered talks over the 28-year-old.

Clyne joined Liverpool in 2015 from Southampton, but injuries coupled with the emergence of academy talent Trent Alexander-Arnold have limited his opportunities in the last two seasons. He spent the second half of last season on loan at Bournemouth.

Meanwhile, Palace are looking for a replacement for Aaron Wan-Bissaka, who recently completed a £50m move to Manchester United, and they could provide the perfect platform for Clyne to resurrect his career.

He originally joined Palace’s academy as an eight-year-old, going on to make 137 first team appearances – more than he has made for any of the three clubs he has represented since.

All of Clyne’s 14 England caps came under current Eagles boss Roy Hodgson, and the pair could soon be set for a reunion.
