Another loan deal out for another one of Liverpool’s unwashed and unloved fringe players. Youth defender Lloyd Jones is reportedly set for a loan to League Two side Luton Town, following an impending and obligatory medical, according to Sky Sports.

Jones joined Liverpool from Plymouth Argyle for a whopping £150,000 in 2011. This will be his fifth loan deal since 2015. The 22-year-old center defender has also endured loan spells to Cheltenham Town, Accrington Stanley, Blackpool, and Swindon Town.
The defender has yet to make a single senior appearance for Liverpool, and given his motley crew of loan destinations (Luton Town now very much included), it’s hard to see a future for this youth player (who, at 22, has just about lost a right to still be called a yute).
This seems to be Jone’s level (or there abouts). Still, for a League Two team, he could make a worse choice: Luton Town are currently set for promotion to England’s third tier, in first place, eight points ahead of chasers, Wycombe Wanderers.
Hopefully the loan proves to be a successful one, and Jones can find a forever home.
