Watford have confirmed the capture of Liverpool forward Jerome Sinclair on a four-year deal.

The 19-year-old, who ends his four-year association with the Anfield outfit, will join the Hornets on July 1 when his current deal with the Reds expires.

Sinclair, who is a former England Under-17 international, made just five first-team appearances for Liverpool during his time in Merseyside, but scored his first senior goal of his career against League Two Exeter City in the FA Cup this term.

The Birmingham-born forward, who has previously been loaned out to Wigan Athletic during the 2014/15 campaign, joins Watford on a free transfer this summer.

Back in January, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp said he thought Sinclair wasn’t strong enough to star for his side in the Premier League, therefore happily allowing him to leave Anfield at the end of the campaign.

Sinclair will work under former Napoli and Inter Milan boss Walter Mazzarri at Vicarage Road, after Watford announced the Italian will be replacing Quique Sanchez Flores as their new head coach on a three-year deal.
