Jerome Sinclair celebrates scoring the first goal for England

Jerome Sinclair's move to Watford was confirmed today after a lot of speculation, with the Guardian reporting a compensation fee was agreed with Liverpool.

Sinclair did not get many first-team opportunities at Liverpool by only making five appearances for the club, scoring one goal in a FA Cup tie against Exeter City.

Given that Liverpool have a number of striking options at the club, the 19-year-old decided not to renew his contract with the Reds and go in search of first-team football elsewhere.

In 2012, Sinclair became the youngest player to feature for the Reds when he made his debut in the League Cup third round tie against West Bromwich Albion at the age of just 16 years and six days.  

On his departure, Sinclair took to Twitter to thank the club that gave him his senior bow with the following message:

It will be interesting to see the role Sinclair has at Watford next season, but he certainly stands more of a chance of getting first-team action given that Liverpool have five players ahead of him in the pecking order for a striker role when they are all fit and available.

The tweets suggest Sinclair seemed pretty keen to end things with Liverpool on a good note. Although he may not have made many appearances for them, he still has a place in their record books, at least for now.
