Highly-rated Liverpool front-man arrives on loan...THE SADDLERS have secured the services of highly-rated Liverpool front-man, Michael Ngoo, on a loan deal until the end of the season, subject to the necessary clearance being received.
The tall and powerful England Under-20 International cut his teeth at Southend United, where his outstanding ability saw him come onto the radar of all the top clubs.
After a trial at Manchester United, he joined Liverpool in September 2009 at the age of 16.
A regular on the scoresheet for the Under-18s at Anfield, his goalscoring prowess continued for the reserve team, for whom he was top scorer in 2011/12.
He was loaned out to Scottish Premier League outfit, Heart of Midlothian, in January 2013 and benefited greatly from playing regular, competitive football, including an appearance in the Scottish League Cup Final.
His development continued at the start of the current campaign when he went on loan to newly-promoted Championship outfit, Yeovil Town, before returning to Liverpool in October.
The 21 year-old is a player of undoubted talent and ability who will add to Dean Smith’s attacking options.
“Michael is a lad that I have been watching for a long time,” said Smith. “He is the right calibre and profile to fit into what we are trying to do here.
“He’s big, strong, athletic and can score goals. Technically he is very good and will improve what we have already got here.
“On top of all of that, he is also a good character and someone that I am looking forward to working with.”
Ngoo will wear squad number 30 and stands by to make his debut as we take on Coventry City on Saturday (kick-off 3.00pm). However, please note that this game is subject to a 9.30am pitch inspection at Sixfields Stadium.
