WISDOM joined Albion from Liverpool on a season-long loan on July 22, 2014, and swiftly joined up with his new team-mates at the club’s pre-season training camp in Sacramento, California.

The 21-year-old spent the previous season on loan at Sky Bet Championship outfit Derby County, making 34 appearances as the Rams narrowly missed out on promotion, falling to defeat in the play-off final at Wembley.

He began his youth career at Bradford before moving to Anfield at the age of 14.

He was named in the England Under-16 side that won the 2008 Victory Shield - and a year later triumphed at the Euro U17 Championships in Liechtenstein, scoring the opening goal in the 2-1 final victory over Spain.

Wisdom went on to captain England Under-19s before being handed his Under-21s debut against Israel in September 2011.

The Leeds-born right-back, who can also play in central defence, scored on his Liverpool debut in a 5-3 Europa League victory at Swiss side Young Boys in September 2012.

Six days later he made his first domestic start in a 2-1 Capital One Cup win over Albion at The Hawthorns.

Wisdom made 19 appearances for Liverpool during the 2012/13 campaign. 

In October 2013 he moved to Derby on a season-long loan.
