Swansea have signed Rhys Williams on a season-long loan from Liverpool, with the Reds defender penning a new five-year contract in the process.

Liverpool believe Williams, 20, will benefit from a year in the Championship, and gave the green light on a deadline-day switch after deciding to keep Nat Phillips as centre-back cover this season.

Phillips, 24, penned a four-year contract earlier on Tuesday, and will remain as back-up to Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez, Joel Matip and new signing Ibrahima Konate, with Williams heading out in search of first-team experience.
