Anfield side snap up talented youngster.
Liverpool have handed a contract to 16-year-old Turkish midfielder Emin Altunay.
The youngster won a football-based reality show in his home country.
Altunay, who played against a selected squad of Liverpool youth players during the show, is now being given his chance with the Merseyside giants.
He said: ‘I’ve been playing football since I was four years old. I’ve always wanted to play football, I want to thank everyone who has given me this opportunity, I won’t let them down.’

Liverpool are very much geared towards planning for the future and one would imagine a lot of scouting was put in ahead of a move to sign the young Turkish midfielder.
Altunay was the winner of the Turkish reality show Futbol Prensi and must clearly have impressed Liverpool representatives who were quick to tie down the youngster to a contract.
The young midfielder will no doubt be thrilled to have followed his fellow countryman Nuri Sahin to the Merseyside club, though the Real Madrid man is currently only at the club on a temporary basis.
