Youngest first-team striker in Liverpool history set to leave club


  • Liverpool striker Jerome Sinclair is likely to leave the club by the end of this season, since his contract issues are not being addressed.

    The 19 year old forward is out of contract in June and according to sources, there hasn’t been any progress in talks over a new deal.

    It has also been reported that Sinclair has recently changed agents and is now represented by Aidy Ward who was the mastermind behind Raheem

    Sterling’s controversial exit from the Reds last summer.

    If sources are to be believed, it is said that there is big difference in Liverpool’s offer, compared to the striker’s demands.

    If suppose Sinclair’s deal expires and he joins another English club, Liverpool would be due compensation by the striker and the fee would be decided by a

    tribunal if matters escalate.

    Sinclair can however sign a pre-contract agreement with a non-English club in the January transfer window and according to FIFA rules Liverpool would then

    be receiving a nominal fee of around £250,000.

    Sinclair holds the record of being the youngest first-team player in the Liverpool history when he played against West Brom in the League Cup at an age of

    16 years 6 days in September 2012.

    His noteworthy appearances were against Crystal Palace which was also the final home game of Steven Gerrard’s Liverpool career at Anfield.

    The striker’s refusal to sign a new deal was the main factor which left him out of Brendan Rodgers’ squad for the pre-season tour last summer.

    Under Jurgen Klopp, the striker has been an unused substitute on two occasions, with his only action coming under Michael Beale’s under-21 squad.

    It is bitter news for Liverpool fans that Sinclair has chosen Aidy Ward as his agent, given the terrible experience of Sterling’s transfer.

    Ward was orchestral in Sterling’s move to Manchester City, insisting that he didn’t care about “Liverpool’s Image”  and told that Sterling wouldn’t agree any

    deal even if he was offered “£900,000 per week”.
