​Ex-Liverpool teenager Devine attracting interest after England exploits

Former Liverpool youngster Alfie Devine is attracting interest from clubs around the country.

Devine was recently at a tournament for under-16 players in England.

He is now 15 and with Wigan Athletic, and is starting to get notice from other clubs in the Premier League and Championship.

The teenager was player of the tournament at the recent event, per theLiverpool Echo.

In a recent interview, Devine spoke about his experiences with the Reds.

"All of it was enjoyable, I enjoyed every minute of it," Devine told the Echo.

"When we were 10, 11, we started going on tours away and I really enjoyed them. We were all mates there and it was really enjoyable.

"At first when you are released it's a bit upsetting.

"You have to go through not only the football side when you're not at the club but you go into school and people ask what's happened and have you been released.

"You don't want to keep telling everyone, yeah, I got released. It doesn't feel nice."

"It's a lot, lot faster than under-16s and u-18s," Alfie explains about the leap into senior football.

"You have to think a lot quicker and then it's the physical aspect as well.

"You can't really take four or five touches on the ball otherwise the ball will be gone so you need to be faster and faster with your feet as well."
