Crisis-club Derby are hoping for a much needed cash windfall, with Kaide Gordon lined up to make his Liverpool debut.

The Rams are about to go into administration because of Covid related debts, with owner Mel Morris desperate to sell after making personal losses on his purchase that he puts in excess of £200m.

But as part of the deal which took teenage sensation Gordon to Anfield back in February, Derby are due some additional payments based on performance-related targets.

Liverpool paid £1.1m for the 16 year old, but that figure potentially rises to £3.4m with add-ons. And the first of those would be £100,000 on his first full appearance for the Reds.

Gordon had already played for Derby’s’ first team at the age of 16 years and two months when he was signed by Klopp in February for a fee of £1m, rising potentially to £3m.
