Crewe Alexandra have signed Liverpool centre back Danny O'Donnell on a six-month loan deal.
The 20-year-old will spend the first half of the new season with Dario Gradi's side after progressing through the ranks at Anfield.
O'Donnell played against The Railwaymen in a pre-season friendly at Gresty Road last month and The Reds have allowed the youngster to earn more experience with the League One outfit.
He will remain with the Cheshire club until the end of the calendar year.
Despite signing on with Crewe, O'Donnell is not eligible to play in Tuesday's clash at Doncaster Rovers.
