Liverpool's defensive crisis meant an inevitable dip into the loan market to find cover. Liverpool's 'hero' comes in the shape of Southampton misfit Steven Caulker. Injuries to Martin Skrtel and Dejan Lovren have left Jurgen Klopp short of options within the club and after deploying Lucas at CB in the previous game, this signing will be a welcome relief for Liverpool fans facing a tough run of fixtures.
Caulker failed to break into the Southampton first team since the arrival of Virgil Van Dijk and Koeman has turned to Maya Yoshida to fill the void in Van Dijk and Jose Fonte's absence.
Liverpool have confirmed they have completed the signing of QPR defender Steven Caulker on a season-long loan deal.
