Liverpool move quickly to secure youngster Eccleston
Skysports.com claims Liverpool's promising striker Nathan Eccleston has agreed a new three-and-a-half year contract. The 18-year-old, who has been in impressive form with six goals in ten reserve team outings, is currently away with Liverpool's second string in Spain and will put pen-to-paper upon returning to England.
Eccleston had reportedly been attracting interest from Premier League rivals, but has ended fears he could jump ship by agreeing to stay until the summer of 2013.
Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez is believed to be willing to loan out Eccleston in January in order to further his education with both Blackpool and Nottingham Forest keen on bringing him to the Championship.
