Liverpool have confirmed that Brad Smith has joined League One side Swindon Town on a youth loan.

The 20-year-old made his first team debut last season when he appeared as a substitute in the 2-1 defeat by Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on December 29, 2013.

The Australian born left-back is an England youth international and he was called up to the U21 squad for the Three Lions at the end of last season.

Smith will team up with his former Academy teammate, goalkeeper Tyrell Belford at the County Ground.
