JD Club NI graduate Conor Bradley pens three-year pro deal with Liverpool

Northern Ireland youth international Conor Bradley has signed a three-year professional contract with Premier League champions Liverpool.

A graduate of the Irish Football Association’s JD Club NI programme, Bradley joined the Merseyside club’s academy last year. On Tuesday the Anfield outfit confirmed the promising 17-year-old had put pen to paper on a pro deal.

Bradley, who came through the ranks at Dungannon United Youth and Dungannon Swifts, captained Northern Ireland schoolboys to the Victory Shield title in 2018. 

A talented prospect, Liverpool have described the County Tyrone native as ‘a versatile and athletic player’ who has been deployed mostly at right-back for the U18s, but can also operate further forward.

Last season he made his debut in the UEFA Youth League as well as featuring for Liverpools U23s in a Premier League International Cup fixture with Paris Saint-Germain. 

His first goal for the Reds came against West Brom last November before scoring a superb goal against Spurs in the FA Youth Cup. A third goal arrived when he headed home a late winner in the league against Stoke City in January.
