Liverpool cancel plans to sell Nat Phillips this summer.

This was among what was revealed by Reds boss Jurgen Klopp on Friday, speaking to the media ahead of this afternoon’s Premier League opener with Fulham.

Phillips was unable to make a single appearance in the Premier League under Klopp last season, suggesting that he is far too redundant.

Earlier this week, it was reported that Liverpool set an asking price of £10m for the towering defender.

However, Ibrahima Konate is sidelined for an indefinite period of time and Klopp admitted that this development means any potential deal to sell Philips will not go ahead for now.

He told The Mirror: “Probably [the Konate injury] It will affect outbound transfers.”

You must feel for Phillips, whose manager called him “utterly insane” in 2021.

Having not played a single minute of the Premier League last season, he would be a hero at times to leave Liverpool.

As much as he might love the Reds, withdrawing from Anfield is certainly a reasonable step in his career and until his departure, he will not get regular football.

Even with Konet out, Joe Gomez, Joel Matip and Virgil van Dijk are still miles ahead of him in the standings.

It looks like it will be five long months until the January transfer window to Phillips.
