Danny Wilson Joined Liverpool from Rangers

Liverpool has signed Scottish center back Danny Wilson from Rangers for a reported fee of around £5 million. The 18-year-old defender is said to be highly talented and has so far represented Scotland in various age levels including U-17, U-19 and U-21.

Wilson went through a medical on Wednesday, followed by the official announcement of his arrival at the Merseyside club.

Martin Bain, the chief executive of Rangers, revealed through the club’s official website, “We have agreed a deal in principle with Liverpool for the transfer of Danny Wilson. Liverpool's offer will see the club receive £2m up front with add-ons linked to games played, taking the total value of the deal to £5m.”

Danny Wilson signed his first professional contract with Rangers in 2007 at the age of just 15 and a number of clubs were interested in him at that time. However, Wilson got the breakthrough last season making total 24 appearances for Rangers.

Liverpool manager Roy Hodgson has been trying to add quality players to his squad to convince his star players like Steven Gerrard and Fernando Torres to stay at Anfield. He has recently signed Joe Cole for free after handing him an offer of weekly salary around £90,000.

Liverpool has also signed free agent Milan Jovanovic and spent £1.7 million to bring in Jonjo Shelvey from Charlton. Now, Wilson has joined the Liverpool roster.

Well, except Joe Cole, none of Liverpool’s signings can be said to be high profile. However, it is pretty much understandable because the club is currently going through a financial problem.
