Done Deal: Boss confirms LFC 'agreement' for Euro sensation; he'll 'become a Liverpool player' this summer

Exciting underwhelming news! Liverpool have agreed a deal to sign...a 15-year-old goalkeeper!

According to the Liverpool Echo:

"Slavia Prague youngster Vitezslav Jaros is to join the Reds in a £300,000 deal after impressing during a week-long trial.

Slavia CEO Martin Krob confirmed the deal in a message on the club's offical Twitter page:

“The agreement [with LFC] exists, now the whole thing we are dealing with it. In the summer, Jaros will become a Liverpool player".

In a recent interview, Jaros discussed his experience at Liverpool's Academy:

“An internship [with Liverpool] was a great experience. On my first day at the academy I attended my first match against Derby County that we lost, but with my performance, I was happy. I think I left a good impression”.

Jaros has just signed himself up for the fast-track to obscurity:

* No goalkeeper has ever progressed through the Academy to become a first-team regular.

* No foreign young player has ever progressed through the Academy to become a first-team regular.

Jaros is both foreign-born, and a goalkeeper, so good luck with that!

I really don't understand why teenage goalkeepers bother with Liverpool. 'Developing' at the Academy is a total waste of time, as there's no path to the first team, either at Liverpool or another club.

When Jaros is eventually spat out by Liverpool, he'll disappear into obscurity just like every other goalkeeper who's come through LFC's Academy.

This is not negativity, it's harsh reality.
