Liverpool pay Aberdeen record fee for 'TAA 2.0' Calvin Ramsay

“We are delighted to announce the signing of (Calvin) Ramsay from Aberdeen,” the club said in a post on Twitter.

Ramsay has put pen to paper on a five-year contract worth £4m, with an extra £2.5m in performance-related bonuses.

The 18-year-old has described his move to Anfield as a ‘dream come true’ and is excited to be the latest youngster to join Jurgen Klopp’s team.

“It was a dream come true to play for Aberdeen, and now to be at one of the biggest, if not the biggest club in the world, it’s a massive achievement and I’m looking forward to trying to show the fans what I’ve got,” he told Liverpool.

“There’s been a lot of young players that have played – the likes of Trent [Alexander-Arnold] and Harvey [Elliott] as well, there’s a lot more,” Ramsay added.

“There’s obviously a pathway here – that’s one of the reasons I chose it as well. It’s not just a massive club, they give young players chances in the first team.”

The right-back, who is expected to provide cover for star player, Trent Alexander-Arnold, will join up with his new teammates early next month for preseason.

The transfer of the youngster, who enjoyed an outstanding breakthrough season at the Dons last season, is still subject to international clearance.

According to the Scottish outfit, the transfer of Ramsay to Liverpool has brought a windfall after the Reds paid a record fee for the youngster.

“Aberdeen FC confirms highly sought-after youngster, Calvin Ramsay, has joined English Premiership side, Liverpool FC, for a club-record fee,” the club stated in a statement on their website.

Ramsay, a Youth Academy Graduate from Aberdeen, was named the Writers’ Association Young Player of the year winner last season after his impressive performances for the Dons.

He made 33 appearances in all competitions throughout the campaign, contributing one goal and nine assists.
