The Reds midfielder is the fifth-youngest player to come back to Anfield.

Kaide Gordon

had his

Liverpool

senior debut during their Carabao Cup battle against

Norwich City

on Tuesday.

The youngster made a move to Liverpool in January from Derby County on a deal that could be around £3 million ($4m) eventually.

Having pulled off an impressive performance in the pre-season, he earned himself a place in Jurgen Klopp’s squad in their battle against Norwich City during the third round.

The 16-year-old, who started against the Canaries, is now the fifth-youngest player in the club’s history.

The record-holder is Jerome Sinclair, who played for the Reds against West Brom in 2012 a week after turning 16. The players that come after him are Harvey Elliott, Jack Robinson and James Norris.

In a senior game, Gordon is the third to have been in the starting XI, with Elliott and Robinson behind him.

During Liverpool’s U23 games, he has managed to meet the back of the net a couple of times this season, establishing himself as one of the brightest talents of the club.

“Sometimes, you see players getting a lot of media attention,” U-23 captain Tom Clayton said in August. “Then, they come in, and you think ‘he’s not that good’. Well, Kaide is!”
