Ki-Jana Hoever has finally been given the green light to start playing for Liverpool after making the switch from Ajax this summer. 

The 16-year-old defender made the switch from Amsterdam to Liverpool back in August but did not have the right international clearance. Hoever has now received the green light and can make his debut for the club’s U18’s.

Liverpool U18 coach Barry Lewtas told the club’s website, “It’s great for him. He’s a good boy. They’re young lads, they just want to play.

“I spoke to him this morning and he’s over the moon that he’s now available. His journey begins now because he can train and try and force his way into the team. It’s really exciting for us.

“He’s just been away with the national team and played right-back, but he’s played centre-back too. He’s got a load of real positive attributes. I don’t want to sell him too much.

“Ajax is a big club and he comes in with a big reputation as he’s an international. But I certainly don’t want to heap too much pressure on him.

“He’s early in his journey here, he’ll take some time to adapt. What I can say is that he’s trained really well and I know he’s going to fit in really well.”
