Darby: Set for Rochdale loan

Skysports.com understands Liverpool defender Stephen Darby is set to join Rochdale on loan.

Rochdale are believed to have fended off interest from a number of clubs to land the highly-rated full-back.

Liverpool are willing to let Darby go out on loan as he is behind Glen Johnson and Martin Kelly in the first-team pecking order.

Rochdale boss Steve Eyre has moved quickly to bring in Darby on a season-long loan deal.

Darby spent the majority of last season on loan at Notts County and Liverpool believe the defender will benefit from going out on loan again.
