Derby County are poised to complete the signing of former Norwich City loanee Andre Wisdom from Liverpool, in a deal which could be worth up to £4.5million.

The right-back has been with the Reds since being signed from Bradford as a 14-year-old in 2008 but has only made 22 appearances, the last of which came in September 2013.

He spent 2013-14 on loan in the Championship with Derby and The Telegraph are reporting he is now heading back to the Rams for an initial £2m, potentially rising to £4.5m.

Wisdom, now 24 years old, made 24 Premier League appearances for West Brom during a 2014-15 loan but played just 10 matches for Norwich in the top flight in an injury-hit 2015-16 season.

He spent the most recent campaign helping Red Bull Salzburg retain the Austrian title, also making five Europa League appearances, but is now poised to sign permanently for Derby.
