17 year-old starlet moves to Anfield from Villarreal.
Liverpool have completed the signing of Madger Antonio from Villarreal.
The teenage midfielder is a Spain U17 international, but his family comes from Guinea-Bissau.
Upon receiving international clearance, Madger will have his move totally confirmed. Given his Spanish passport, that should be no more than a formality, and the 17 year-old has already trained with his new academy team-mates.
Madger confirmed the move himself on his Twitter account.

Madger is a left footed midfielder with considerable potential who has already played for the Villarreal B team. The Spaniard is a highly technical player who will play with Liverpool’s U18s and U21s this season, but with the hopes of graduating after that.
With his contract up next summer, Madger has reportedly cost the Reds a mere nominal fee.
