Liverpool sign young defender Tony Gallacher from Falkirk

Steve Nicol is at odds as to why Daniel Sturridge would go off on loan to Inter Milan, where he does not feel he'd get the regular minutes he needs.

Liverpool have confirmed the signing of young defender Tony Gallacher from Falkirk.

Gallacher, 18, has completed the move that is initially worth £200,000, sources have told ESPN FC, and is viewed as a player for the future at Liverpool.

After signing a contract at the Merseyside club, Gallacher will now join up with Neil Critchley's under-23 side with a view of progression to the first team.

The left-back had been at Falkirk, who play in Scotland's second tier, since the age of 10 and had made 26 first-team appearances in total.

Falkirk manager Paul Hartley told the Scottish Championship club's website: "This is an incredible opportunity for Tony. It's not very often that a move like this comes about and I am really pleased that he has been given the chance to go down there and prove what a great young talent he is.

"We are not a club that would stand in a player's way when an opportunity like this presents itself and Tony leaves with our very best wishes."

Gallacher has represented Scotland at youth level across various age groups.
