Liverpool were involved in a transfer tug of war with Manchester United for Romello Mitchell. However, it seems like it is not United that the Reds should have worried about.
Born in 2003(!), Mitchell was linked with the big Premier League clubs in December for the first time. Now as the summer approaches his name is again in the news.
It is not his transfer to Liverpool or Manchester though, as the Saints stole a march on both their bigger rivals. Mitchell may eventually sign for the St. Mary’s side.
It is now reported that he was on a trial at Southampton, who got first to him. Now, post the trial, he is able to accept a contract offer from the Saints.
