And so it begins. The summer transfer competition is underway as Liverpool followed Manchester United (Chicharito Hernández – 21) and Tottenham (Sandro – 21) in signing a promising young player. But the Reds chose not to go international and snatched up Jonjo Shelvey, an 18-year old midfielder who has excelled at Charlton Athletic over the past two years. Shelvey was the youngest ever Charlton player when he debuted at 16 and has scored seven goals in his two years at The Valley. Liverpool get Shelvey for a modest £1.7m fee which is a boon for the Addicks. It will be interesting to see if more high-powered Premier League clubs aim for younger, home nation players rather than the big money signings of players in their late 20s.
