Dulwich Hamlet youngster Carr set for Liverpool trial

The 18-year-old forward signed for the Ryman South club last summer following his release from Reading and he could be set to make a quick return to the Premier League

Liverpool are the current favourites to sign Dulwich Hamlet's Daniel Carr after agreeing a trial for the striker, the player's manager Gavin Rose has claimed.

Carr, 18, has managed 23 goals from his 23 appearances for the Ryman South side so far this season and Liverpool have already been in contact, with the youngster set to train with the club's academy.

The forward's eye-opening campaign comes on the back of being released by Reading last summer and his coach believes he will go on to have a distinguished football career.

Rose told talkSPORT: “Daniel has done well for us since he joined us in September.

"He came to us after being released from Reading. He went on trial at a few league clubs and signed for us as a winger but we saw something in him as a central striker and he’s done really well, progressed every week and scored goals.

“He will train with Liverpool's academy team for two days. He will then return to us on Friday afternoon and they will let us know how he did and inform us if they want to take their interest any further.

“We have to make sure the boy keeps his feet on the ground. He’s played a lot of football this year and the last thing we need is his concentration disturbed by going to others clubs."
