The right-back injured his back in pre-season in a match against Tranmere and has not featured at all after suffering countless setbacks with the problem and undergoing surgery in November.

Klopp has revealed he is back in training now and they hope to see him feature before the end of the campaign.

“I’m not 100 per cent sure with Clyney, [he] is still not in team training but he is as close [as he has been] since the summer,” the German said.

“He’s on a really good way, close to being back in team training but, how you can imagine, when you are that long out then it will probably take quite a while to be ready to play.”
