Liverpool have announced the surprise signing of Coventry youngster Conor Thomas on loan.
The England Under 17 international has moved to Anfield on loan with a view to a permanent deal.
Thomas, who has come the youth ranks at Coventry, is highly-regarded within the corridors of the Ricoh Arena.
The 17-year-old has only two first-team appearances for Coventry, including Saturday's FA Cup clash at Birmingham.
Liverpool's scouting staff have been keeping tabs on Thomas and they have now decided to bring him to Anfield.
