Liverpool defender Nathaniel Clyne is unlikely to leave the club this summer after he suffered an unfortunate injury setback.
The English international right-back will miss at least six months of the new season after he suffered a serious knee injury during the club friendly with German Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund.
Nathaniel Clyne tore his ACL (Anterior Cruciate Ligaments) during the game which ended in a 3-2 defeat at the hands of Borussia Dortmund.
The Liverpool defender was seriously linked with Premier League clubs like Bournemouth and Crystal Palace but the knee injury sustained by the player has all but ended the possibility of a move this summer.
Nathaniel Clyne came through the ranks at Crystal Palace before making his debut for the first team.
He went on to join Southampton before signing for Liverpool in 2015.
Clyne was linked with a return to Crystal Palace as a direct replacement for Aaron Wan-Bissaka who has left the club to join Manchester United in a £50m deal this summer.
The player also spent some time with Bournemouth during the second half of the season.
He joined the Cherries on loan during the winter transfer window before returning to reigning European champions Liverpool this summer.
