Liverpool goalkeeper Ben Winterbottom signs pro terms

Liverpool goalkeeper Ben Winterbottom has signed pro terms.

The goalkeeper joined the Academy last year after impressing on several occasions against the Reds for his former team Blackburn Rovers.

The 18-year-old – who turns 19 next week – started last season in the U18s but was turning out for the U23s by September.

Winterbottom's debut in Premier League 2 was a memorable one, making a spectacular penalty save against Derby County.

In December, Winterbottom was on the bench for the first team as a youthful side took on Aston Villa in the quarter-final of the Carabao Cup.
