Liverpool capture Lions youngster
Liverpool have signed 16-year-old Millwall trainee David Amoo for an undisclosed fee.

Amoo was a prolific scorer for the South-East London club and his signature was highly sought after.

Lions manager Willie Donachie told the club website, "We're very disappointed to be losing David he had the potential to be a first team player here."

Liverpool's head of recruitment Malcolm Elias said: "He's an exciting talent with fantastic physical prowess."

Amoo represented London as a sprinter in the English Schools National Track and Field Championships.

Elias added: "Along with Marvin Pourie and Nathan Ecclestone he'll provide excellent competition for places among the first year boys in this season's under-18 set-up."

The forward was close to a first team call up at Millwall with the youngster considered as one of the best prospects at the academy.

He joins a talented bunch of young players to have joined Liverpool who are looking to follow up on their FA Youth Cup success.
