Jerome Sinclair looks on the verge of finalising a switch south to Premier League outfit Watford, after Liverpool agreed a fee with the Hornets, the Echo reports.
Watford will pay £4m for Sinclair, who’s contract is actually up. Due to his age though, Liverpool are due a compensation fee, with the teenage forward agreeing a contract with the Hertfordshire outfit back in April.
There was once a time when many Reds believed Sinclair was destined for greatness, but he’s not fulfilled his potential and been unable to improve at the rate we hoped since becoming our youngest ever player aged 16 years and six days back in 2012.
Perhaps most importantly, Sinclair chose to appoint Aidy Ward as his agent early last season, which was likely the nail in the coffin of his Liverpool career. Ward infamously encouraged Raheem Sterling to leave Liverpool for Manchester City, making extremely offensive comments in the process, cutting all future ties with the club.
We wish Sinclair all the best, and harbour no real bitterness towards a player who was a long way from our first-team anyway.
With Liverpool’s plethora of attacking options, the striker was a very far way from earning regular minutes, especially with no European football next season.
