Youngster on his way to Anfield.
Check in to Southampton FC vs Liverpool
Liverpool are set to hand a contract to young Hungarian defender, Kristof Polgar, according to the Express.
The 16-year-old has impressed Reds boss Brendan Rodgers over two separate trials during January and February, and coaches have now seen enough to deem him worthy of a contract.
Rodgers is believed to be looking at expanding the talent pool at Liverpool’s disposal in the youth set up, and that means scouting Europe for the best players available.
Currently, Polgar is represented by the Careers Management Group but the company’s director, Tibor Pataky, believes that there should be no problems in moving his player on to bigger and brighter things; “We are looking forward to an exciting day, and in a few days the Hungarian presence will be extended at Liverpool,” he said.
Liverpool already have two Hungarian players on their books in the shape of goalkeeper, Peter Gulasci, and midfielder, Krisztian Adorjan.
Gulasci has appeared on the Liverpool bench several times this season in the FA Cup, Europa League, and during the derby against Everton after spending time on loan with Hereford United, Tranmere Rovers and Hull City. He has also represented Hungary 26 times at U21 level.
Adorjan is the current academy captain. So amongst such esteemed company, Polgar should fit in perfectly.
