Liverpool will be obliged to pay Derby County a six-figure sum if Kaide Gordon makes his debut against Norwich City on Tuesday night, The Telegraph‘s John Percy has revealed.
Gordon left the Rams to move to Anfield back in February, with the two clubs striking ‘an undisclosed compensation agreement’ (via Goal).
The winger is now in line to make his debut in the Carabao Cup third-round clash at Carrow Road, having been rested for the Under-23s’ clash with Leeds United on Sunday.
And should he do so, it will trigger a £100,000 payment to the Championship side.
Excitement around Gordon
Assistant manager Pep Lijnders spoke about the 16-year-old winger in the build-up to the game.
He said that Gordon wowed him in the summer with his ability to go past players ‘like they are not standing there’.
And the Dutchman also revealed that Trent Alexander-Arnold had become something of a ‘mentor’ for the teenager.
Fan feed Anfield Watch Academy relayed the news from Percy, and here’s what supporters made of it.
