Liverpool defender Tony Gallacher’s proposed move to Sunderland has fallen through after the League One club pulled out of the deal.

Liverpool were prepared to cut short the 22-year-old left back’s contract allowing him to join on a free but with a sell-on clause inserted into the transfer arrangement.

Johnson feels he needs a number of bodies in before August 7 as he plans Sunderland’s challenge for promotion.

However, Sunderland changed their mind on Wednesday evening over their move for Gallacher and the deal is now off.

The former Falkirk defender, who had a loan spell with Toronto last season, is assessing other transfer options.

Liverpool are looking to raise funds by selling or loaning out fringe players this summer and are open to offers for Xherdan Shaqiri, Divock Origi, Nat Phillips, Neco Williams, Ben Davies and Rhys Williams.
