England’s ‘best 15yo’ Emeka Obi signs with Liverpool

Liverpool have pulled off a coup of sorts by landing highly-rated teenager Emeka Obi.

A report in the Daily Mail suggests that the Reds have seen off competition from Stoke City to sign the 15-year-old 6ft5in central defender.

Liverpool have agreed a six figure compensation fee with League One club Bury for Obi who has already played in the Checkatrade Trophy.

The 'man mountain' trialled with Stoke in the summer but it is understood that Liverpool have won the race for his services.

Bury boss David Flitcroft has previously said of the Nigerian-born starlet that he is the 'best talent at 15 years old in the entire country'.
