Done Deal: Dominic Solanke joins Liverpool

Liverpool have announced the signing of England Under-21 striker Dominic Solanke from the Premier League champions Chelsea.

Solanke finalised his move to the Merseyside giants a month after agreeing a deal.

The 19-year-old forward told the club’s official website: “It feels amazing and everyone has made me feel welcome already.

“Even just pulling on the training top, I was over the moon. Hopefully I can put on the shirt in the near future and make some good history here.”

The England Under-21 international leaves the Stamford Bridge having made just one appearance for the Blues, but having scored seven goals in 25 appearances during a loan spell with Vitesse in the 2015-16 campaign

Solanke, who has been a prolific goalscorer throughout Chelsea’s youth ranks, will wear the number 29 shirt in the coming season.
