The teenager told liverpoolfc.tv: "Well, I grew up in East London in a place called Beckton. I started out playing for a team called Pegasus before going to West Ham.
"I was released by them and went on trial at Southend. I did well there and continued to train hard and tried to develop. Then Liverpool came in and Manchester United were interested too... I was advised to come here and I'm happy with my choice. I just want to keep pushing on now."
