Liverpool sign promising youngster who wants to be the next Steven Gerrard

Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez has paid an initial £1.7million for Charlton's 18-year-old midfielder Jonjo Shelvey, promising more signings of a similar nature.

Benitez said: 'We have been working on Jonjo for a year. He will be ready for a place in the first-team squad next season.'

'I've mirrored my game on Steven Gerrard - I love him to bits, everything about him, from the way he walks to the way he plays,' says Shelvey. 'I want to have played with him and against him by the time I've finished my career. That's my dream.'
