Sinclair agrees Watford switch

Young striker Jerome Sinclair has ended his four-year association with Liverpool after agreeing a long-term contract with Watford on Saturday.

The 19-year-old has put pen to paper on a four-year contract wit the Hornets, just hours after the announcement that Walter Mazzarri had agreed a three-year deal with the Premier League outfit.

Sinclair will officially become a Watford player when his Liverpool contract expires at the end of June.

Watford will, however, have to pay a fee for the teenager, which will be set by a tribunal, due to the fact that he is under the age of 23 and was offered a new deal by the Merseysiders.

In a statement published via their Instagram page, Sinclair’s representatives, Colossal Sports, said: “Proud to announce a brand new beginning for this young man… his aim is to try and achieve greatness and bring joy to the #watfordfc fans and take the club as high as possible… good luck on your new journey Jerome.”

The Birmingham-born player joined the Reds’ youth system as a 14-year-old in 2011 after his West Brom contract expired.

In total, he made five appearances in all competitions for Liverpool, including two in the FA Cup this season.
