Liverpool’s Nat Phillips seals Cardiff City loan deal

Liverpool center-back Nat Phillips has completed a loan move to Cardiff City for the rest of the season.

Nat Phillips had initially been on loan with Scottish club Celtic during the first half of the season but was recalled earlier this month after featuring in ten matches for just over 400 minutes. Despite interest from several Championship teams, Cardiff secured the loan signing of Phillips for the remainder of the campaign.

“I think it’s a great stadium, a great city and a big club,” Phillips said when joining Cardiff. “I think the club has ambitions to compete, and we’re in a decent position in the league. That made it an exciting move.”

Nat Phillips brings Championship experience to Cardiff City, having played 17 times for Bournemouth in the second half of the 2021/22 season. His contributions played a role in helping Bournemouth secure promotion back to the Premier League.

Nat Phillips has 18 months left on his Liverpool contract. He may be sold this summer after his loan spell with Cardiff. This potential move aligns with Liverpool’s aim to strengthen their center-back options.

As Liverpool plans for defensive changes, decisions will also need to be made regarding Joel Matip, who has a contract until the summer, and Virgil van Dijk, expressing uncertainty about his future following Jurgen Klopp’s impending departure.

In addition to Phillips, Liverpool has been active in securing loans for several players. Full-back Owen Beck has rejoined Dundee, having initially impressed during the first half of the season. With Andy Robertson nearing recovery, Liverpool opted to send Beck back to Scotland.
