Liverpool have completed the signing of Serbian youngster Marko Grujic, who joins from Red Star Belgrade for the princely sum of £5.1million.
As part of the fine print, the 19-year-old attacking midfielder (everybody’s an attacking midfielder these days) will return to Red Star on loan for the rest of the season.

You may recall that Grujic’s father attempted to scupper his son’s prospective Liverpool transfer last month by hiding his passport on the grounds that a move to Anfield would “ruin” his boy’s nascent career.
As such, we’re imagining today’s news hasn’t gone down overly well in the Grujic household.
