Clark and Mellon worked together at Barnsley and the 20-year-old midfielder has said that after a successful trial period, he is grateful for the opportunity and can't wait to get started.

"Without him being here I don't think I would maybe have got the chance to come here," he said to the club's official website. "I've got to be really thankful for him so I'll thank him later when I see him!

"I know Micky and I know what he wants, how he wants to play so I know what he's thinking. I know if you play and do what he wants then you'll be successful and I think the club will be successful this year."

He added: "It's been a great two-and-a-half weeks, three weeks, coming in as a trialist. The lads and the manager have made me feel really welcome so I couldn't have asked for any more than that.

"Now I'm just looking forward to kicking on and looking forward to the season starting."

couple of wins and everything is OK! Sorry you still haven't got a striker who can consistently goals. Keep searching. I don't think Liverpool will make top four not even Europa League this time around.

f he can find the right player? Surely the manager of one of Europe's top clubs has a well-researched short-list and has a good idea of who he wants to bring on-board? If I can find the right player sounds like someone going out on Saturday night on the pull, and the nearer you get to midnight the lower your standards drop.
