Liverpool set to land Charlton youngster

Liverpool are set to win the race to sign Charlton starlet Jonjo Shelvey, skysports.com understands. The 18-year-old midfielder has long been touted as one of the finest young prospects in England. He has previously turned down Chelsea's overtures, whilst Tottenham, Arsenal and West Ham are also known to have been keen on securing his services. However, skysports.com now understands that Liverpool have indeed won the battle for his services. Despite the ongoing uncertainty at Anfield over boss Rafa Benitez and the club's owners, they have managed to seal a deal for Shelvey. It is understood that the teenager will travel to Merseyside early next week to undergo a medical before completing a summer switch. Shelvey will finish the season with Charlton, who he still hopes to guide back into the Championship. The 18-year-old has long been touted as one of the finest young prospects in England.
