Andre Wisdom has vowed to return to Liverpool a better player next season
The 21-year-old spent most of last campaign on loan at Derby, where he suffered play-off final heartbreak.
However, he was impressive at the Championship side and now he believes he has improved during his time away from Anfield.
As quoted on the Daily Star website, he said: “I have had a brilliant time at Derby County and every minute of it has been a real pleasure,” the right-back said.
“The aim was to come out and play games and I have done that for the last seven months.
“Under Steve McClaren, I think I have grown as a player and a person and when I report back at Liverpool for pre-season training, I’ll be a better player for the brilliant experience I have had.
“I think I have improved as a result of being at Derby and it is just a shame we didn’t get the promotion we deserved.
“The lads were brilliant from the minute I arrived. It’s not just them, though; the staff and fans have shown so much support to me.
“I’ve made some good friends as a result of coming to Derby and I can’t speak highly enough of the place.
“I am just gutted I didn’t get a goal. I had a few chances and in such an attacking side, but just couldn’t score.”
