Wolves snap up Liverpool defender Jack Robinson on loan

Sport | Published:

Wolves today signed Liverpool left-back Jack Robinson on loan until the end of the season.

The England Under-21 international could come straight into the squad for tomorrow's crunch Championship clash at Barnsley.

The 19-year-old has been drafted in with Stephen Ward Wolves' only fit recognised left-back with George Elokobi still out injured.

Boss Dean Saunders said: "We have more or less signed Jack Robinson from Liverpool.

"We've got no cover in that position with only Wardy at the club and he was ill yesterday so I've acted quickly and got the deal done. I think Wardy will be OK for tomorrow, though.

"Jack has played for Liverpool this season and he's going to be a good player when he comes of age. He is aggressive and he's going to come and help us."

Robinson became Liverpool's youngest player when he made his debut as a 16-year-old against Hull in the Premier League in May 2010.

However, the left-back has yet to establish himself as a regular and has made a total of 11 appearances in all competitions for the Reds.

He has not been involved in the league this season under Brendan Rodgers, but has featured twice in the FA Cup, Capital One Cup and Europa League.
