Liverpool sign Newcastle star
Liverpool are expected to close a deal for young Newcastle winger Bobby Clark in the coming weeks.
ECHO understands that a transfer is likely to be completed soon, with the bulk of an agreement in place.

“It’s a tough environment because there are so many good young players across the country.
“He’s going to be fine, but there will be some ups and downs that every young player will experience, as long as he keeps working hard, listens to his coaches and tries to do the right thing, then he might have it.” opportunity to do something. “

Why senior stars “swore” on a young goalkeeper
Pep Lijnders has revealed the unlikely winner of the ‘most spectacular goal prize’ as a youngster’s beating experience at Liverpool’s pre-season training tournament.
the red are currently in the middle of a pre-season training camp in Austria as they ramp up preparations for the new season.
On Tuesday night, Jurgen Klopp’s side drew 1-1 with Wacker Innsbruck and VfB Stuttgart in their 30-minute pre-season mini-game schedule with a slew of new faces featured.
Ten academy youngsters were named to Liverpool’s 34-man training squad ahead of the Reds’ trip to Austria and it looks like the starlets are impressing under the Alps.
In his latest training camp diary, Lijnders explained that the “young” team – led by Trent Alexander-Arnold – won the team’s final tournament on Wednesday.
However, while most would expect the most ‘spectacular’ goal to come from one of Liverpool’s established elites, it actually came from a regular off the bench.
liners said Liverpoolfc.com : “In Wednesday morning’s session, Kostas’ volley that smashed him with his left foot probably won the most spectacular goal.
“Sadio also scored one with his left foot from an impossible angle, so I don’t know who I would give the most spectacular goal to.
“The young team won the final tournament; Trent used his shooting skills to lead them to victory.
“I told him after Tuesday’s games that in the Under-16s, he had scored so many goals at great distance.
“Maybe he took it into account, or it’s just the competition between the old and the young… probably the latter, haha!”
“The young team have shown that every path to the goal is the right one. The ugliest count the most! “
Despite Tsimikas and Mane vying for the title of the best goal, it was Caoimhin Kelleher who stood out for the assistant manager.
“But, to be honest, the player of the tournament was Kelleher,” he said.
“His shooting stops and speed reactions were just insane. It shows that a goalie can make you win tournaments.
“There were older players swearing at him! “
