Liverpool have signed youngster Aaron King from Rushden & Diamonds. The 16-year-old has won a move to Anfield after impressing during a trial period at the Premier League titans. The young striker has agreed a two-year scholarship deal at Anfield and will continue his education at the club. Rushden's head of youth development Paul Driver admitted the deal was a big achievement for the club. "We are all absolutely thrilled for Aaron - this is a brilliant achievement for everyone involved in his development throughout the five years that he has been with us," Driver told the club's official website. "His progress with us to get to the level where one of the 'Big 4 Clubs' is prepared to offer him a scholarship also serves as further evidence of how well we have maintained our system despite the withdrawal of financial support from the football authorities in the past two seasons".
