Liverpool have completed the signing of goalkeeping giant Kai McKenzie-Lyle from Barnet, he has revealed on his personal Instagram account.

The 20-year-old, who stands at 6ft 7in, posted on social media on Thursday evening that he has finalised a move to the Merseyside giants as he attached a image showing him signing terms.

McKenzie-Lyle, who has already accumulated three full Guyana caps, has joined Liverpool after undergoing a trial over the summer although is still listed as a Barnet player on their official website.

OPINION

Liverpool appear convinced McKenzie-Lyle has the promise to match his immense presence. The giant keeper has spent the last four years at Barnet after joining their academy aged 16 before making his first-team debut shortly after his 18th birthday. Despite his youth, he has already established himself at full international level and, remarkably, scored on his debut for Guyana, the only goalkeeper in modern history to do so. McKenzie-Lyle joins an already well-stocked goalkeeper department at Liverpool, headed by number one Alisson and his deputy Simon Mignolet. The club also have Kamil Grabara and Caoimhin Kelleher on the books, although the latter suffered a freak training ground injury this week that is likely to sideline him until the end of October. This gives McKenzie-Lyle the chance to push for a place in the Under-23s team and make his mark at one of the world’s elite clubs. The hard work starts now for him.
