The 18 year old suffered a serious knee injury during a pre-season game against Tranmere Rovers but after a successful surgery he has promised to come back even stronger.

Neil Critchley, manager of Liverpool U23s, said: “Paul will receive all the support he needs from ourselves as an Academy and from the medical staff at Melwood during what will be a tough period of rehab.

“Luckily we know Paul has the strength of character to overcome this setback and we look forward to seeing his talents back out on the pitch.”

The teenager scored 28 goals last season while captaining the under-18s and converted the winning penalty in the shoot-out success against Manchester City to win the FA Youth Cup in April.
