Charlton youngster on verge of joining Liverppol

Charlton Athletic have revealed they have given midfielder Jonjo Shelvey permission to talk to Liverpool about a possible move to Anfield.

Shelvey, 18, has been tipped as one of the hottest prospects outside of the Premier League but may now have a chance to display his talents in the top flight after Charlton confirmed that he has been allowed to travel to Merseyside to discuss personal terms.

Liverpool will pay an initial £1.7 million for the England youth international, with further potential payments depending on domestic and international appearances.

Shelvey is thought to have undergone a medical and included in the terms of the move is a commitment for the two clubs to discuss a strategic partnership involving the development of players in both directions.

Shelvey made his first-team debut aged just 16 years and 59 days - becoming the club's youngest ever player, and he has scored four goals from midfield this season.
