Is Ben Davies a good signing for Liverpool?

Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez may not be back in action this season, while Joel Matip will not return until next campaign.

Fabinho is a regular in defence despite being a defensive midfielder by trade, and even Jordan Henderson has played at the back on occasions this season.

Davies will allow the likes of Fabinho and Henderson to go back to playing in midfield.

True, the 25-year-old has been at Preston his entire professional club football career so far, but he is an experienced professional who was a success in the tough and competitive Championship.

It was important for Liverpool to add reinforcements in defence for the rest of the season and they did just that, and now the fans can relax a bit.
