The centre-back came through at the Academy but opted for a move to Huddersfield six years ago.
In 2015 he was then signed by Wolves and has gone from strength to strength with the Birmingham-based outfit.
He said to Sky Sports: "Brendan Rodgers was good to me when I was young.
"I had a season training with the first team at Melwood, and learning off them, that was big for me, but I always knew it was tough.
"I was always realistic, I was learning a lot off the first team, how to play and do things.
"I knew at some point I'd have to come away from Liverpool to really experience being a first-team player.
"It was the best decision I ever made, and Brendan Rodgers was great for that; he pushed that to send me on loan and try to improve my game.
"Liverpool were always getting better, they were always improving, and the players in my position were ridiculous.
"But I just wanted to play football. I knew where I was at, the type of level I was at, but I just wanted to be part of a first team, playing in games which meant something, playing against men."
