A slightly less public piece of business took place at Anfield on deadline day, with Liverpool confirming a double deal to bring youngster Suso and Adam Hajdu to the club.

Whilst the British media focused on moves for Carlton Cole, Bobby Zamora and Asamoah Gyan, the Liverpool academy went about their business to strengthen the famous youth setup at Melwood.

The addition of Suso - real name Jesus Joaquin Fernandez Saenz De La Torre - is regarded as a real boost for the club. Pending international clearance, the FC Cadiz striker will join on a scholarship programme after his successful trial period during pre-season.

"Suso is a class act, there's no doubt about it," said reserve boss John McMahon during Suso's stint at Anfield.

"He is a very clever player in the mould of Dani Pacheco and he is very exciting to watch."

The 16-year-old was used largely in reserve and academy activity during his time with the club, but got a first team opportunity under Roy Hodgson in the game against Borussia Moenchengladbach. Unlikely to feature in senior plans just yet, Suso will become part of the academy and reserve teams.

Hajdu's temporary transfer continues the Merseyside outfits interest in young Hungarians, with the form MTK Budapest player joining fellow U17 internationals Patrik Poor and Krisztian Adorjan at the club.

Subject to international clearance, the player will be with the Reds until June 30th, 2011.
