‘Very composed’ defender seals Liverpool transfer exit

Liverpool youngster George Johnston has signed a permanent deal for Feyenoord.

Feyenoord has been in pursuit of the youngster for a while now and have finally won him over.

The BBC has confirmed the exit of the defender and the Scotland U21 will be joining the Dutch giants.

As well as being capped at a national youth level, Johnston has also captained the Liverpool U23 side – but he will now continue a growing trend and seek his development abroad.

The centre-half who has played for Scotland  twice at the Under-21 levels has been at Anfield since age nine and his performances has proved his potential.

Johnston played a vital a role in the Reds U23 last season, wearing the armband for his team.

The 20-year-old came through the ranks at Liverpool but was never trusted enough for a first team role at the club.

Feyenoord got Johnston for £300,000, but the Reds are due to get 30% of any fee If Feyenoord decides to sell him.

Liverpool will probably still sell more players as there are several fringe players pushing for an exit from the club. Ryan Kent for example has no place in Jurgen Klopp’s pan for the new season.

Klopp will only let Kent go on a permanent deal with Leeds reportedly interested.
