Liverpool are ready to give teenage Hungarian defender Kristof Polgar a contract after he impressed on trial, according to Sky Sports.

The 16-year-old centre-back spent two short spells on trial with the Reds in January and February, and Brendan Rodgers is thought to have pleased with his performances.

The report claims Liverpool are set to make Polgar an offer, as they look to bring the best young talent from around Europe to Anfield.

And Polgar's representatives confirmed they believe the youngster will sign for the Reds sooner rather than later.

Tibor Pataky, director of the Careers Management Group which owns Polgar's registration, told "Kristof trialled with Liverpool on two occasions earlier in the year, and he and his parents are currently in Liverpool enjoying the hospitality of the club.

"We are looking forward to an exciting day, and in a few days the Hungarian presense at Liverpool will be extended."

Rodgers' has two Hungarian players in his squad already. Peter Gulasci is back-up to Pepe Reina and Brad Jones in the first-team squad, while Krisztian Adorjan is captain of Liverpool under-21s.

The Reds chalked up a precious win over Tottenham at the weekend, running out 3-2 victors at Anfield to move up to sixth in the Premier League table. 

Brendan Rodgers' side came from behind to secure all three points as second-half goals from Stewart Downing and Steven Gerrard overturned a 2-1 deficit.
