Liverpool defender Andre Wisdom is set for a move to FC Red Bull Salzburg on a season-long loan deal.

Wisdom, 23, had been heavily linked with a reunion with his former Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers at Celtic, but the Austrian side are now favourites to complete a move.

Wisdom has had loan spells at Derby County, West Brom and Norwich City.

Liverpool have also agreed to sell Spanish forward Luis Alberto to Serie A side Lazio for £4.3m.

Alberto, 23, made 12 appearances for Liverpool after he was signed by former manager Brendan Rodgers from Sevilla in a £6.8m deal in June 2013.

He has now travelled to Rome to discuss personal terms after impressing while on loan at Spanish side Deportivo La Coruna last season, scoring six goals.

The fee also includes add-ons and a 30% sell-on clause for the Reds.
