Liverpool seal £4m Ramsay signing with Reds’ transfer business set to end after teenager’s arrival

In a club-record sale for the Scottish side, the 18-year-old heads to Anfield as their final purchase of the summer.

Liverpool have completed the £4 million ($5m) signing of Aberdeen right-back Calvin Ramsay, it has been confirmed.

The Scottish defender had been courted by a number of European clubs over the past year and saw an offer for a move to Bologna knocked back during the January transfer window.

That has ultimately opened the door for a host of Premier League outfits to make their move on the highly rated 18-year-old – and it is Jurgen Klopp’s Reds who have won the race for his signature in the end.

Ramsay will cost Liverpool £6.5 million ($8m) overall, though that will be split between an initial transfer fee of £4m and £2.5m in add-ons. It will be a club record sale for Aberdeen.

Liverpool have announced that Ramsay has penned a five-year deal at Anfield, with those terms expected to tie him down on Merseyside through to the summer of 2027.

The highly-rated youngster has told the Reds’ official website: “I’m just buzzing and it’s a dream come true really to be here.

“It was a dream come true to play for Aberdeen, and now to be at one of the biggest, if not the biggest club in the world, it’s a massive achievement and I’m looking forward to trying to show the fans what I’ve got.

“Hopefully I can come in in pre-season, show everyone at the club, the staff, players what I’ve got and then we’ll see what happens from there.”

The Premier League heavyweights have announced that Ramsay will be taking their No.22 shirt.

That jersey has tended to be filled by back-up goalkeepers down the years – from Loris Karius to Chris Kirkland via Scott Carson and Simon Mignolet – but now passes to to promising full-back.

Despite the majority of their rivals gearing up for a busy transfer period, Liverpool are set to conclude their business with the capture of Ramsay, following the prior arrivals of Fabio Carvalho and Darwin Nunez.
