The right-back has returned to full training as the Reds prepare for an encounter with Porto in the Champions League

Nathaniel Clyne has returned to training with Liverpool and has joined the squad for the Champions League last-16 first leg against Porto on Wednesday.

The full-back has missed all of the 2017-18 season owing to a back problem, with his last appearance coming in the 3-0 Premier League win over Middlesbrough on May 21.

The 26-year-old is back working with his team-mates, but Liverpool say he is "still some way off being considered for selection" and will therefore not be risked in Portugal.

Manager Jurgen Klopp told the club's official website: "Clyney is back; of course, it is absolutely too early to think about him, but he is back in normal training, so that's cool.

"He's been training for two days but after that long of a break, it will take time until he is able to play."

Clyne joined Liverpool from Southampton in July 2015 for a reported fee of £12.5 million.
