Harvey Blair has signed his first professional contract with Liverpool FC.

The 17-year-old joined the Reds at U12 level from Manchester United.

Blessed with good pace, size and ball control, the young attacker is in his first season with the club’s U18 group under manager Marc Bridge-Wilkinson.

In fine goalscoring form during pre-season, the Huddersfield-born forward started the league season on the left of a front three.
