Celtic forward confirms move to Liverpool


Ben Doak has confirmed his move from Celtic to Liverpool on social media

Scottish wonderkid Ben Doak has confirmed his move to Liverpool on social media after the Anfield club forked out a £600,000 compensation fee to sign him from Celtic .

Doak, 16, was attracting interest from a number of teams before the Reds wrapped up a deal last month, with the allure of Jurgen Klopp convincing him to move to Anfield, according to The Athletic .

It is also believed the success of other young players such as Trent Alexander-Arnold and Curtis Jones on Merseyside played a part in his decision.

The highly-rated winger was handed his senior Celtic bow back in January as Hoops boss Ange Postecoglou desperately tried to persuade him to stay put, which saw him become their second-youngest ever debutant.

He was then brought on in the closing stages of their Old Firm victory over Rangers in February.

However, after deciding to leave the club and sign for Liverpool, he is yet to feature under Postecoglou.

And after reports of the Reds' £600,000 move surfaced last month, Doak has now confirmed his switch to Anfield on Instagram.

The teenager posted a photo that shows him signing his Reds contract at the AXA Training Centre and wrote: 'Looking forward to a new chapter.'
