Liverpool have signed centre-back Oludare Olufunwa on a free transfer to bolster their Under-21 squad.

The 20-year-old impressed during a trial at the AXA academy in pre-season after being released by Southampton and rewarded with a contract.

Olufunwa, who had spent 11 years at Southampton’s academy, will compete for a place in the squad alongside young defenders Jarell Quansah, Lee Jonas and Terence Miles.
