Report: 19-year-old Liverpool prospect to join PL rivals after rejecting contract, £250k compensation

Liverpool prospect Remi Savage is reportedly set to sign for Premier League rivals Newcastle United after rejecting a new contract to stay.

According to the Athletic, the 19-year-old will pen a three-year contract at Newcastle. 

It is understood he will move to Newcastle following the end of his current deal this summer on Merseyside.

The report says the defender was offered a one-year contract extension, but he’s rejected that to try make a quicker breakthrough into first-team football at St James’ Park. Liverpool will receive a £250,000-a-week compensation fee. 

Savage has been with Liverpool since an Under-9s player. However, he’s now exiting this summer.

Remi Savage deserves credit for ditching Liverpool to join Newcastle

Liverpool teenager Savage should be applauded for turning down a new deal from his boyhood club this summer.

It’s clear he feels his best chance of a senior breakthrough is away from Anfield, so he’s showing the ambition to try make it elsewhere.

The centre-back may have had a long wait to get an opportunity in Jurgen Klopp’s squad.

Meanwhile, Newcastle will hope they are snapping up a gem from their league rivals.

The Longstaff brothers are testament to the fact young players get a chance at St James Park. Also, the way Arsenal’s Joe Willock thrived at Newcastle during his loan should tempt players to the Toon.
