Liverpool have secured the signing of former Chelsea youth team footballer Isaac Christie-Davies after his contract at Stamford Bridge expired.

The Reds had been widely expected to complete the signing of Christie-Davies, and while the deal has yet to be confirmed by either club, the midfielder did appear in a video for the charitable organisation Common Goal wearing a Liverpool training jersey.

In their tweet welcoming Christie-Davies to their team, the organisation – whose members have vowed to donate one percent of their wages to charity – Common Goal referred to him as “new Liverpool player”.

Christie-Davies had reportedly been viewed as a promising young player throughout his youth career at Chelsea, with many coaches believing that he would one day make the step up to the first team.

In the end however, he has ended up following in the footsteps of Dominic Solanke, a former Chelsea youth player who joined Liverpool in May 2017 after failing to agree a new Chelsea contract.

Solanke made 21 appearances for Liverpool last season and scored his first ever Premier League goal in the Reds’ final game of the season against Brighton & Hove Albion.
