Lawlor: Liverpool will be back in touch

Published Add your comment

Liverpool have joined the race to sign highly rated Cliftonville striker Rory Donnelly, reveals the Northern Irish club's chairman Gerard Lawlor.

The 19-year-old has attracted attention from a host of Barclays Premier League clubs with Everton and Swansea also said to be tracking his progress.

Donnelly's representative is due to hold talks with his clients suitors, but Lawlor explained that they may be put on hold after Reds boss Kenny Dalglish contacted him about a potential move to Anfield.

"It's not every day you get Kenny Dalglish ringing you and asking how the Reds got on at the weekend," Lawlor told the Belfast Telegraph. "He made it clear that Liverpool want to sign him and that they would be back in touch."

Dalglish will need to act quickly if he has any hopes of bringing Donnelly to Merseyside, as Cliftonville are keen for the youngster's future to be resolved before the New Year.

The club have already accepted an offer from Swansea, and so Liverpool will need to submit a bid of their own if they are to capture the player's signature.
