Liverpool have completed the signing of Chelsea’s teenage forward Dominic Solanke after his contract with the Premier League champions ended.

The fee for the 19-year-old will be decided by a tribunal, with Liverpool expected to pay about £3m.

Solanke scored four goals as England won the under-20 World Cup in South Korea this summer.

“It feels amazing and everyone has made me feel welcome already,” Solanke said.

“Even just pulling on the training top, I was over the moon. Hopefully I can put on the shirt in the near future and make some history here.”

Solanke spent the 2015-16 season on loan at Vitesse Arnhem, scoring seven goals in 25 games.

Celtic were also understood to be interested in Solanke, whose only Chelsea game came as a substitute in a Champions League victory against NK Maribor in October 2014.
