Liverpool FC  have ratified the signing of Nigerian striker Taiwo Awoniyi, who has joined the club from Imperial Academy in Nigeria.

The initial fee will be in the region of £800,000 but that could rise to £3million with add-ons.

However, Awoniyi does not qualify for a work permit so will be immediately sent out on loan to FSV Frankfurt.

He told the club’s official website: ‘This is the biggest club in the world and I’m privileged to be here.

‘I’ll try to develop myself very well so that when I come back to Liverpool I’ll be able to add value to the team.

‘When I’m in the red shirt, I will always give my very best to make the fans happy.’
