Done deal: Liverpool sign Amara Nallo on five-year contract after deal agreed with West Ham United

Liverpool have completed the signing of young defender Amara Nallo from West Ham, according to ExWHUemployee.

Writing via his Patreon account in the early hours of Thursday morning (24 August), the reliable Hammers insider reported that the 16-year-old a signed a five-year deal at Anfield after rejecting a contract offer to stay in East London.

It is understood that the Hammers are disappointed that Nallo has left them as he’s been “tipped for a bright future” at the London Stadium.

What next for Nallo?

West Ham fans can be forgiven for not knowing a lot about the young centre-back but Nallo is a player who was being rated highly by the club’s academy staff.

Despite starting last season at the age of 15, Nallo played twice in the Under-18s Premier League for the Hammers.

He made one of those appearances while he was 15 when he started a 3-1 defeat against Chelsea’s Under-18s.

Nallo is a left-footed defender and would have been eligible to receive a professional contract at West Ham in November when he turns 17.

However, the Londoners have been beaten to the punch.

Liverpool have been linked with Nallo for a few weeks now with Football Insider reporting on 2 August that advanced talks were being held about a transfer.

It’s hard to see why he’s gone to Liverpool at this stage because there’s likely to be a harder route into their first-team squad than there is at West Ham.

We’ll see how things develop for him on Merseyside.
