Deal Confirmed: 'Unbelievable' sensation officially confirms he's now a 'footballer at Liverpool FC'

Bury star Emeka Obi has officially confirmed his transfer to Liverpool.

On Thursday, the Daily Mail claimed:

"Liverpool have beaten Stoke to the signing of Bury teenager Emeka Obi [and] agreed a six figure sum with add-ons".

The Bury Times further suggested that the deal was delayed:

"Pre-contract papers have all been signed [but] due to his Nigerian heritage, visa issues are currently holding up the move".

The deal appears to be done, though, as Obi's Twitter profile on claims:

"Footballer at Liverpool FC".

If Obi states he's a 'footballer at Liverpool FC' then it's safe to assume the deal is done.

According to Bury manager David Flitcroft, Obi - who is Bury's youngest ever player - is a 'man mountain' (he's 6'5) who's been training with Bury first team for '5 weeks'. Flitcroft further raved:

"He [Obi] is going to be an unbelievable asset to the football club. He’s a kid that’s really switched on, I’ve watched him while he’s been on summer holidays and he’s been in every single day".

Welcome to five years of toiling away in the academy, before being loaned out to Huddersfield. Or Accrington Stanley.
