Yours for £1m. Need to make room for Dean Saunders

Of course he did.We were less of a club when we bought Robertson for less than 10 million and I'm not convinced he made the move believing he would be our 100% guaranteed week in week out starter.
Whether it’s a conversation with Klopp, his agent, or just puzzling it out by himself, he can look at that Liverpool side and see that his competition for a starting place are a veteran midfielder who doesn’t want to play there, and an odd lad in the last year of his contract who the fans don’t like and doesn’t seem to know how to play football. There is no hot academy prospect that he is going to be competing with. Whether he thinks he is getting in straightaway or he’s going to have to bide his time a bit, he can see a route to the first team and the move makes sense.
Any left back we target now is going to see the World’s Best Left Back ahead of them, and unless they have delusional levels of self belief, have completely understandable questions about where they get their game.
