Liverpool to grant 10-year goalkeeper Shamal George free transfer

Liverpool goalkeeper Shamal George is set to end a decade with the club this summer.

The Daily Mail says George is close to joining Swindon Town.

George, 21, has previously had loan spells at Carlisle and Tranmere but never played a first-team game at Anfield, though Jurgen Klopp once played him as an emergency striker in a pre-season friendly against Huddersfield.

Swindon Town finished 13th in League Two last season and appointed former Wigan boss Paul Jewell as their director of football.

It is understood Liverpool will allow George to leave on a free but want a sell-on clause in case the youngster fulfils his potential and moves up the leagues again.
