The 17-year-old joined the Reds from his hometown club Derry City in July last year.
A winger blessed with skill and pace, he enjoyed a fine first season on Merseyside with the U18s, scoring 11 goals – including three in the UEFA Youth League – before injury brought an early end to his campaign.
He has started 2023-24 in similar form, netting on his U21s debut in August away at Derby County, while continuing to impress with the U18s, for whom he fired in a hat-trick against Sunderland earlier this month.
Kone-Doherty has already trained with Jürgen Klopp’s senior squad and enjoyed youth international recognition from the Republic of Ireland up to U18 level.
In a message on Facebook today, Derry City FC said: “Congratulations to Trent Kone-Doherty on signing his first professional contract at Liverpoo!.
“He joined the Reds from Derry City just last year.”
We wish Trent all the best with his professional career at Anfield. YNWA!Tags:
