The Premier League club won’t be able to sign any academy players who have been registered with a Premier League or Football League team in the last 18 months.

Although the ban is for two years, the second 12 months has been suspended for a three-year period and will only be activated in the event of any further similar breach by the club.

A brief statement from Liverpool said: «The club accepts the sanction.»
