Liverpool have concluded a deal for 16-year-old US Orléans defender Billy Koumetio

RMC report that Liverpool have concluded a deal with Ligue 2 outfit US Orléans to sign 16-year-old defender Billy Koumetio.

Born in November 2002, Koumetio is considered in French football circles as one of the greatest teenage prospects of the hour.

The player was brought up by the Lyon youth academy, before departing after OL failed to convince the left-footed central defender to stay, which brought Koumetio to join Orléans instead.

The Frenchman arrived in Liverpool this week and has directly joined the Reds’ youth academy.

A source close to Liverpool has described the 1.92m centre back as “a real player, well-surrounded and very talented.”
