Liverpool defender Stephen Darby has joined Rochdale on a season long loan deal the Anfield club has announced.
The 22 year old has struggled to win a cement right back place with Martin Kelly and Glen Johnson ahead of him in the pecking order and spent last season on loan with Notts County.
The defender, who has made six appearances for the Reds, is Rockdale’s fifth signing of the summer and will link up with fellow new boys Marc Twaddle, Ashley Grimes, Simon Hackney and Andrew Tutte.
Meanwhile Liverpool have also announced that 18 year old Andre Wisdom has signed a new contract extension with the club. The highly rated defender was captain of the reserves for the 2010/2011 season.
