Fans react as Ben Davies joins Sheffield United on loan

Ben Davies has signed a season-long loan deal with Championship side Sheffield United.

It sees a return to the league for the defender just six months after leaving Preston North End to complete a dream move to Liverpool.

Sheffield United are not thought to have an option to buy Davies at the end of the loan as Liverpool were reluctant to include that.

The left-footed defender leaves Anfield without making a competitive appearance for Jurgen Klopp’s side.

Liverpool fans are left wondering whether they will ever see him play for the club, with many questioning the signing in the first place.

Sheffield United fans are unsure whether it is a good signing for them, with his lack of action in 2021, but others feel as if he will be a good fit for Slavisa Jokanovic’s side who are hoping for an immediate return to the Premier League.

For Preston North End fans however, they are frustrated that Davies has yet to make a deserved appearance in the top flight, and they will have to face him twice this season. The first of the fixtures isn’t too far away, as The Lilywhites travel to Bramall Lane on the 14th September.

Ben Davies could make his debut on Wednesday night up against another former Preston player in Callum Robinson, as Sheffield United face West Bromwich Albion away.
