Former Liverpool right-back Jones has stated on Twitter that it is a good move for Stewart, and has added that it is good business for the Reds as well.

The Merseyside outfit signed the the English midfielder back in the summer of 2014 on a free transfer following his departure from Premier League rivals Tottenham Hotspur.

This means that Liverpool have made £8m on a player they signed for free - a piece of great business indeed, as highlighted by Jones.

True, Liverpool have had to spend £10m in order to sign 23-year-old left-back Andrew Robertson from Hull, according to The Sun, but the fact that they got a player they needed and parted company with a player they did not for a 'net loss' of just £2m shows just how good business this has been for Jurgen Klopp’s side.
