Young Liverpool midfielder Leighton Clarkson has signed his first professional contract at the club.
The news of his professional contract was revealed by the official Twitter handle of Liverpool earlier on Monday.
Leighton Clarkson has represented the various youth teams at Liverpool in the past few years from the u16s, u18s, and the u19s.
The 17-year-old was part of the Liverpool u18 team that won the FA Youth Cup last season.
The young midfielder has been at Liverpool since the u8 Academy.
Leighton Clarkson is definitely one for the future at Liverpool who are currently on the preseason tour of the United States (US).
The Reds have not been in good form during their tour of the United States as they step up their preparation for the new season which is scheduled for the second week of August.
