Liverpool will reportedly have to pay Derby County £100k after handing Kaide Gordon his debut against Norwich in Tuesday night’s Carabao Cup clash

Gordon has been praised by Klopp’s No2 Pep Ljinders having impressed since his move from Derby – where Rams boss Wayne Rooney described him as “a fantastic player” with “a lot of potential”.

Liverpool will reportedly have to pay cash-stricken Derby County £100,000 due to Kaide Gordon being in the starting line-up to face Norwich City in tonight’s Carabao Cup clash. The exciting 16-year-old winger will make his debut for Jurgen Klopp’s side in the third-round clash at Carrow Road.

The winger spent the majority of Liverpool’s preparation for the 2021-22 campaign with the first team and scored in a behind-closed-doors friendly against Premier League rivals Aston Villa.  

He has also scored two goals this season in three Premier League 2 games, having fired nine in 13 appearances for the Reds’ under-18s last season following his move from Derby in February.

Liverpool signed Gordon for an initial £1million in a deal that could rise to around £4m, after the talented teenager forced his way into the first team at Pride Park last term.
