Kohlert signing moves closer

Liverpool are on the verge of signing Danish starlet Nikolaj Kohlert, according to the player's agent, reports Sky Sports.

The Esbjergs midfielder enjoyed a trial with the Reds earlier this year and the club have moved quickly to line up a deal for Kohlert who will continue his footballing education with the club's academy. Kohlert's agent, Allan Nielsen, says only personal terms need to be agreed before the deal can be finalised.

"I can say as much as there will be a meeting in Liverpool today. The only thing remaining is the personal contract," said Nielsen.

"I see no immediate problems in the clubs agreeing. There should be no problems at all but last but not least, it will be up to Esbjerg. But I am sure this will be no problem."

"This is a fantastic opportunity for a 16-year-old. He is ready both as a person and as a footballer. He will probably start in the academy on a scholarship before he turns 17."
"After that it will be the reserve team and then he will get a professional contract for three years with an additional option for Liverpool."

"It is a really really good contract. All that's remaining now is to get the details in place today."

LFC Alert reported upon the story earlier in the month, with the young player admitting: "It is a huge boyhood dream. Liverpool is one of the greatest clubs and I cannot think of a better framework for my development. I am extremely happy."
