Conor Bradley pens a three-year professional contract with Liverpool.
The talented teen joined the club’s Kirkby Academy last year.
The teenager had a prolific season and was rewarded for his efforts with a three-year pro deal with the Reds, the longest the club is permitted to offer a 17-year old.
“It’s a bit overwhelming that I’m going to join the club that I support,” Bradley told the Belfast Telegraph before moving to Liverpool last summer.
“Hopefully I can take it all in my stride.”
His first goal arrived against West Bromwich Albion in November and he scored a superb effort versus Tottenham Hotspur on his FA Youth Cup debut in December.
Liverpool said on their website: “A versatile and athletic player, Bradley has played most of his Liverpool games at right-back for the U18s, although he can also be deployed further forward.
“One of Bradley’s season highlights was a late headed winner against Stoke City in January and, by the end of the campaign, he had also made his bow in the UEFA Youth League and with the U23s in the Premier League International Cup fixture with Paris Saint-Germain.”
