The versatile midfielder came highly recommended by Wayne Rooney, the Manchester United legend describing the youngster as the best 16-year-old in the country.

Kaide Gordon brace

This week the U18s beat Wolves 4-1 at the academy.

The Reds earned a victory thanks to braces from Max Woltman and Kaide Gordon.

The recent arrival was in fine fettle throughout the game, constantly threatening the visitors back line with his inventive passing and dribbling ability.

Time for U23s?

Gordon just keeps impressing for the U18s, perhaps it’s time to promote him.

In one of our exclusive interviews with Emile Heskey, the ex-England forward told us that if an academy player is finding a level too easy then you’re not doing him justice.

Gordon made his senior debut for Derby County shortly before his switch to Liverpool, he has what it takes. Hopefully we’ll see him promoted sooner rather than later.
