Nat Phillips: Loan Target for Middlesbrough and Stuttgart Amid Koumetio’s Dunkerque Move

Nat Phillips in Demand: Middlesbrough and Stuttgart Eye Loan Move

Liverpool’s Nat Phillips is attracting interest from Middlesbrough and Stuttgart for a potential loan move. The 26-year-old defender had previously spent a loan spell at Stuttgart during the 2019-20 season, participating in 22 matches. Additionally, he had a stint on loan at Bournemouth. Despite making 29 appearances for Liverpool, he only played twice in the Premier League last season. Phillips had played a crucial role in the injury-hit 2020-21 season, featuring 17 times in the league. However, now he is seeking regular game time elsewhere.

An Opening for Phillips

Nat Phillips may be permitted to go on loan as he is not currently factored into Jurgen Klopp’s immediate plans for the team. This loan opportunity could allow Phillips to regain momentum and gain valuable match minutes.

Koumetio Heads to Dunkerque

In another development, Liverpool’s 20-year-old defender, Billy Koumetio, has successfully secured a season-long loan move to the French side USL Dunkerque. The youngster, who had previously represented France at youth levels, had a loan stint at Austria Vienna in the preceding season. While being part of the Liverpool first-team, Koumetio has made two competitive appearances. He played against Midtjylland in the Champions League during 2020 and also featured against Leicester in the League Cup in 2021.
