The Jerome Sinclair transfer saga has come to its end, with the teenage striker finalising a deal with Quique Sanchez’s Watford, talkSPORT confirm.
The forward’s contract expires in the summer, but because of his age, Liverpool will be due a compensatory fee – although if we can’t agree one with Watford – it’ll be decided by a tribunal.
Sinclair is the youngest player to ever don our red shirt, making his debut under Brendan Rodgers in 2012 – but sadly he hasn’t fulfilled the potential he showed as a youngster.
The nail in Sinclair’s coffin was his appointment of Aidy Ward as agent, the representative who so famously poisoned his links with the club last summer during the Raheem Sterling sale.
Jurgen Klopp wants youngsters to play for football and development’s sake – not for hefty contracts – and it’s clear the relationship wasn’t going to work.
The German gave Sinclair opportunities in the FA Cup this season, with the forward scoring against Exeter, but that will surely be his last goal for the club – with plenty of players fit and ahead of him in the pecking order.
