Liverpool Football Club have confirmed that defender Tiago Ilori has joined Spanish outfit Granada on loan until the end of the season.

The 20-year-old centre-back will spend the remainder of the current campaign with the La Liga side, who are currently 10th in Spain's top flight.

Ilori joined the Reds on transfer deadline day last September, sealing a switch to Anfield from Portuguese giants Sporting CP.

The Reds' No.26 has yet to make a first-team appearance for the club, but has been named on the substitutes' bench three times and featured for the U21s.
