19-year-old Liverpool striker Jerome Sinclair has signed a four-year contract with Watford after the youngster failed to agree a new contract at Anfield, according to Sky Sports via Colossal Sports' Instagram account.

Sinclair will leave on a free transfer once his Liverpool contract comes to an end on July 1.

Sinclair received a limited amount of game-time at Anfield, after only making one competitive start in an FA Cup third round match against Exeter City, in which he scored his first senior goal in what turned out to be a memorable 2-2 draw for the League Two club.

Although his career at Liverpool didn't turn many heads, he will be remembered as Liverpool's youngest ever player after making a substitute appearance in 2012 against West Brom at 16 years, six days.

Jurgen Klopp revealed that he believes the former English youth international is not up to the physical demands that the Premier League brings whilst playing as a central striker.

Sinclair will join the Hornets on the same day as newly appointed manager Walter Mazzarri, following the dismissal of their former manger, Quique Sánchez Flores.

Klopp has made it clear in his first few months in charge at Anfield that he demands a certain level of fitness and strength to succeed in his future plans.

Sinclair has proved in the youth teams that he is more than capable of playing well, although his desired wage was completely unrealistic for a player who has only made one start for the club.

Raheem Sterling, who signed for Manchester City in a £50million transfer last year, was sold due to similar circumstances in the sense that he required so much money at such a young age.
