2. Bundesliga club Stuttgart have completed the season-long loan signing of 22-year-old Liverpool defender Nathaniel Phillips.
“In Nathaniel Phillips we are signing a young English central defender who was on the cusp of breaking into Liverpool’s first-team squad last year. That did not quite come about for him due to the incredible competition in that position and also the fact that he suffered an injury, but this has given us the opportunity to get Nathaniel on loan for the season. We’re convinced that he has everything it takes to fill the void left by Marcin Kaminski’s injury and very soon be able to play an important role in central defence,” said sporting director Sven Mislintat.
