Youngster Leighton Clarkson is reported to have agreed to sign a three-year deal with Liverpool, according to Football Insider.

The 17-year-old midfielder is being regarded as the future first-team prospect as he played a key role in Red’s win over Manchester City in the FA Youth Cup last season.

Leighton Clarkson has been a regular first-team player with Liverpool’s U-18 and U-19 team, and the club officials are happy to see his progress all the way.

The English international possesses the ability to play in a central attacking role and also has an impressive range of passing.

Clarkson has scored four times while playing for the Red’s U-18 team and could be loaned out by the club this summer, in a bid to gain some first-team minutes.

While playing for the U-18 team, he got the opportunity to play under Gerrard for a short period and has praised the former Liverpool player.

“It was brilliant; I never thought that Gerrard would be my manager one day. For that to happen was a dream,” he explained.

“[He would] help us, especially me when I trained with him, because passing was probably his main strength and it’s mine too, so he did help me a lot with that.

Clarkson had assisted ten times for the U-18’s and was only behind Duncan- 16 and Jake Cane-13 in the list.
