Exclusive: Danny Mills believes West Ham could 'Benefit greatly' from reported pursuit of 28y/o

Danny Mills believes West Ham could benefit greatly from signing Liverpool defender Nathaniel Clyne.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Laura O’Leary, the ex-England defender admitted he rated Clyne and felt that he had been a little unfortunate at Anfield.

It was recently reported that the Hammers were in pursuit of the 28-year-old as he is one of the options they’re considering signing following Ryan Fredericks being ruled out of action for a month.

Mills insisted that Clyne is a good player and that when he is a 100% fit again following his recent injury, then he’ll be able to help whatever club he does join.

When asked about West Ham being a good fit for Clyne as there’s no way he’ll get back in the Liverpool first-team, Mills told Football Insider: “I think he’s a very good player, a very good defender and he’s been unfortunate.

“And obviously the emergence of Alexander-Arnold has clearly hampered his progress but I think he’s a good player.

“Somebody, once he gets himself a 100% fit, will benefit greatly from the player that he is.”

Clyne hasn’t featured for Jurgen Klopp’s side this season due to injury and his current contract is set to expire at the end of the current campaign.

It is unclear when the right-back, who has 14 caps for England, will be fit enough to return to action but Klopp did recently state that the defender is in a “good way.”
