Yalany Baio delighted with progress at Liverpool

Liverpool U18 midfielder Yalany Baio is delighted with the progress he's made at the Merseyside giants.

The Guinea-Bissau-born midfielder has been likened to former Chelsea and Real Madrid star Claude Makelele.

He told liverpoolfc.tv: "I trained with the first-team at Melwood a month or so ago. I was playing with Lucas Leiva, Jon Flanagan and Doni, the goalkeeper. They all gave me some good advice. I was also playing alongside Joe Cole before he left for Lille and he was great with me.

"I respect him a lot and hope he does well in France."
