Liverpool have completed the signing of defender Anderson Arroyo from Fortaleza CEIF.
The Colombian teenager previously had a trial at the club and was monitored closely following this, with the ultimate decision taken to bring him to Anfield long-term.
And the eighteen year old will spend the next eighteen months on loan at Spanish outfit Mallorca – who had also taken him on trial with a view to bringing him to Europe.
“Liverpool FC can now confirm the completion of the signing of defender Anderson Arroyo, who has immediately moved to Real Mallorca on an 18-month loan deal,” read a statement on the club’s official website.
“Arroyo has departed for a temporary spell in Spain, where he will spend the remainder of this campaign and the whole of the next with Segunda B leaders Mallorca.”
Arroyo is a left-back and an Under-20 international and has made twenty-two appearances for Fortaleza’s first-team.
