Sheffield Utd defender Pearson says Liverpool in regular contact

Sheffield United defender Ben Davies says parent club Liverpool is in regular contact.

The centre-back joined the Blades back in August after failing to make a single appearance for the Reds since his February arrival.

"He (Jurgen Klopp) just said to enjoy it and wished me good luck for the season," he told Yorkshire Live when asked what Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp told him when he left the Anfield club.

"I echoed the same back. I am in quite frequent contact with two or three guys at Liverpool who get involved in the loans and come and watch. One is coming next week to have a chat.

"The first month of being here has been about getting that resilience in my body back.

"I went from playing a lot of time and not training much to training a lot and not playing much. That switch has been quite difficult for my body, so the first month has been about game time and recovery and switching that rhythm back again.

"Looking forward I want to stay in the team, help the team and play as many minutes and pick up as many wins as we can and hopefully if I am doing that and helping the team that can become a successful year and we can try and get Sheffield United back to where they belong."
