Liverpool in advanced talks to sign 'new Henderson' Sunderland whiz Stephenson

Liverpool are in advanced talks to sign the 'new Jordan Henderson' from Sunderland.

The Liverpool Echo says the Reds are swooping for the jewel of Sunderland's academy, 15 year-old Luca Stephenson.

The 15-year-old midfielder, who is regarded as one of the Black Cats' best youth prospects, is expected to cost the Reds around £200,000 in terms of a compensation fee.

If the transfer goes through then Stephenson is likely to start off with Barry Lewtas' under-18s squad at the Kirkby Academy.

England youth international striker Bobby Duncan arrived from Manchester City, while the Reds also swooped to sign Ajax teenager Ki-Jana Hoever.
