Kaide Gordon pens first professional contract


Kaide Gordon has  been handed his first Liverpool professional contract after impressive start

Kaide Gordon has signed his first professional contract at Liverpool.

The Academy prospect turned 17-years-old on Tuesday, the age at which clubs are able to legally offer such a deal.

Gordon, who joined the Reds from Championship side Derby County in February for a fee that could rise to £3million, has made an instant impact since arriving at the club.

Initially involved with the under-18s earlier this year, he has since made the jump to Barry Lewtas' under-23s side.

The teenager caught the eye of Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp when part of a group of Academy players who trained with the senior squad during pre-season, and featured in friendlies including the Anfield win over Osasuna and 4-3 defeat to Hertha Berlin.

Gordon made his senior debut for the club when selected to start in last month's Carabao Cup victory at Norwich City, becoming the fifth-youngest player to feature in the Liverpool first-team in the process (16 years and 351 days).
