Watford have signed out-of-contract Liverpool striker Jerome Sinclair on a five-year contract.

The Reds would have been entitled to compensation - usually decided by a tribunal - as Sinclair is just 19 but the clubs have managed to come to an agreement which will see the Merseysiders receive £4million.

In a statement Liverpool said: "His registration would have been subject to compensation in the form of a development fee.

"However, following amicable and professional discussions between Watford and Liverpool, the clubs have reached an agreement regarding a transfer."
