Coventry City have confirmed Liverpool have signed 15 year-old goalkeeper Tyrone Belford.

Belford joined Liverpool on a three-year deal with the Scousers beating off the likes of Manchester United to gain his signature.

Sky Blues chairman Ray Ransom told the Coventry Telegraph: "It is very difficult to hold on these boys.

"People talk about giving the smaller clubs incentives to develop players without fear of them being taken for nominal fees, so something needs to be done.

"Daniel Sturridge is a classic case and it is time smaller clubs got some protection because it is going to keep happening."
