Ghanaian starlet Mumuni Abubakar is confident of securing a deal at Liverpool after enjoying a two-week trial with the club.

The 18-year-old New Edubiase United midfielder was invited to Merseyside by Reds chief Kenny Dalglish, after the club's renowned scouting network picked up the player's talents during a friendly match against Parma.

And Abubakar believes he made a positive impact on the coaching staff during training sessions and a match for Liverpool, although admits discussions take place between the club and his agent rather than with him personally.

"They were impressed by my performances during training and the match that I played," the U20 international told Joy Sports.

"The technical team like my style of play, so hopefully they will sign me.

"When you go to trials, they talk to your agent and not you the player. Liverpool is talking with my agent (Oliver Arthur) now. They're impressed with my performances so we should get a favourable response."

Abubakar would be the first player to move directly from the Glo Premier League to the English equivalent if the move goes through.

He'd also be following in the footsteps of compatriots Tony Yeboah, Michael Essien and Asamoah Gyan if the transfer is completed to the top flight.
