Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has confirmed plans to send Tiago Ilori out on-loan.

Ilori arrived in the summer from Sporting Lisbon.

"He has come in and he now knows what Liverpool is about and the standards," the manager said. "So now we can look to let him out on loan, because it has been difficult for him in terms of game time, even though he has come in and shown the profile of player we thought he would be."
