Southend United have revealed that teenage striker Michael Ngoo has joined Premier League giants Liverpool. The 16-year-old has joined the Reds in a deal which could be worth £250,000 to the League One outfit following a successful trial at Anfield. "It's a good deal for the football club and a great opportunity for Michael to be at one of the biggest clubs in the world," youth coach Ricky Duncan told the club's official website. "The deal could be worth over a quarter of a million pounds if he goes on to realise his potential but the initial fee is a lot smaller than that. "He leaves Southend with our best wishes and we're delighted he has managed to move on to a club of Liverpool's stature."
