Unconfirmed sources have told YA that former US U-17 international forward Andrew Oliver is the latest American to head to Liverpool FC for training.
Oliver, 17, is set to begin training with the club this week but it is unclear if this is a trial or a mere training session.
Oliver heads to Liverpool on the heels of reported successful trials of Marc Pelosi and Villyan Bijev who have both reportedly been offered contracts by the club.
Oliver is from Indianapolis, Indiana but has spent a significant amount of time playing with the U-17 team last cycle in Bradenton. He was not part of the U-17 World Cup team.
