The 24-year-old joined Liverpool’s academy from Bradford in 2008 and he was handed his first-team debut by Brendan Rodgers in 2012 but he struggled to earn regular gametime.

The versatile defender enjoyed his first loan spell away from Anfield with Derby during the 2013-014, playing 34 times, before more recently linking up with West Brom, Norwich and Red Bull Salzburg for season-long deals.

Derby have been heavily linked with Wisdom’s signature all summer and it’s understood a deal had been agreed in principle before finally being pushed through on Monday.

Wisdom, who was unlikely to be in the first-team picture this season, leaves Merseyside after putting pen-to-paper on a four-year contract.

Liverpool confirmed the news via their website: “Everyone at Liverpool FC thanks Andre for his contribution to the club and wishes him the best of luck in his future career.”
