The fit-again England defender has struggled for minutes since his return.
Klopp said, "It was not the best year for Joe with the injury and then coming back.
"We have not rushed his recovery or rehab. When you start playing and training again we had three or four 100% fit centre halves.
"We are patient and Joe is patient. And I don't have any plans to give anyone on loan in the winter. I will not be the driving force anyway. He still needs time to train to get to where he was before."
