Liverpool have been given the green light to let young defender Ki-Jana Hoever get his career with the Reds underway after receiving international clearance.

After agreeing a move from Ajax Amsterdam back in August, Hoever had to wait for paperwork to be approved but is now allowed to get stuck in with Liverpool.

The Liverpool Echo reports: “Hoever has been given the go-ahead to pull on a red shirt in competitive action after training at the club’s Kirkby Academy for several weeks.”


U18s manager Barry Lewtas has expressed his delight at Hoever being given the green light to play games.

He said: “It’s great for him. He’s a good boy. They’re young lads and they just want to play. I spoke to him this morning and he’s over the moon that he’s now available.

“His journey begins now because he can train and try and force his way into the team. It’s really exciting for us.”
