West Brom teen sensation Yan Dhanda has announced he's joined Liverpool on his Twitter account.

The 14-year-old attacking midfielder was wanted by Arsenal and Liverpool, but it looks like the Anfield club have won the race.

On Friday evening, Dhanda tweeted: "OFFICIALLY A LIVERPOOL FC PLAYER!!!!!!!"

He was later welcomed to the club by fellow youth team Liverpool starlet Jerome Sinclair on the social media site. 

Sinclair also moved from West Brom, and became Liverpool's youngest ever player when he made his senior debut at the age of 16 years and six days last season.

Dhanda has been called up for the England under-16s - the youngest player in the international age group - and was snapped up by West Brom after starring at an Asian Soccer Star under-11s talent tournament.

His YouTube clips have gone viral on the internet, and some of his skills can be seen below.

According to the Daily Mail, one of his idols is Italy legend Andrea Pirlo, and he primarily operates in an attacking midfield role.

US sportswear giant Nike have already signed Dhanda up to a contract.
