Liverpool have today confirmed that Academy striker Michael Ngoo has joined Walsall on loan until the end of the season.

The 21-year-old will spend the remainder of 2013-14 with the Saddlers, who currently sit sixth in the Sky Bet League One table.

Ngoo spent the second half of 2012-13 with Scottish outfit Hearts, where he notched five goals in 17 appearances, before joining Yeovil Town for a three-month spell at the start of the current campaign.

The tall forward is an imposing presence out on the field, boasting impressive technique and has been with the Reds since signing from Southend United in 2009.
