Liverpool complete second January signing

06/01/2020

Liverpool have completed their second signing of the January transfer window in an undisclosed fee with Joe Hardy joining from Brentford B.

Hardy, a former Man City academy player, makes the move to Anfield after scoring 40 goals in 80 games for Brentford B, having first joined the club during the 2016/17 season.

A Brentford statement read: “Brentford Football Club can confirm that Joe Hardy has joined Liverpool for an undisclosed fee.”

“Joe has been here for a number of years and last year he had a pretty fruitful season in terms of being the top goal scorer and playing a number of games,” said Brentford B coach Neil MacFarlane as the transfer was confirmed.

“He’s perhaps come to the end of his time with the club in terms of the strategy, and to go to a club the size of Liverpool can only be good for him. The club are flying at the moment, they’re European champions, and potential Premier League winners, so being in and around that environment can only be good for Joe.

He’s certainly going from an environment here that has prepared him properly.
“We’ve said it in recent months, that not all of our players will go on to play for Brentford’s first team, but what we want to do is give them a career and this is a step forward in Joe’s career and his mind to go to Liverpool and compete with the under-23 group and see where it takes him.”

Hardy becomes Liverpool’s second signing of the January window, with the young forward following Takumi Minamino to Anfield.

Japan international Minamino, 24, officially joined the Reds from Red Bull Salzburg on the first day of the month, and he made his debut for Jurgen Klopp’s side in the FA Cup third-round defeat of Everton on Sunday
