Stan Collymore commentates on Newcastle versus Aston Villa Premier League game

Liverpool are facing the prospect of a transfer ban over an illegal approach for a Stoke City schoolboy, according to reports.

The journal understands that the Merseyside giants are being investigated by the Premier League which could see them unable to bring in new personnel this summer.

Stoke had been paying the fees until the player, regarded as one of their brightest talents, accepted an offer to join Liverpool with an inducement that the Anfield club would pay for his education until the age of 16. However, the boy can not sign for another club until Stoke have received a compensation fee of £49,000 from Liverpool and, in the meantime, the parents have been left liable for school fees that are believed to run into the thousands.

But Liverpool may still face punishment for reneging on the deal with the Premier League considering imposing a youth transfer ban on the club as a result.

Real Madrid were banned from signing players in the January transfer window for flouting similar rules, while Atletico Madrid will find out the result of the appeal against their two-window ban on April 24.

A source has been quoted as saying that; "If the Premier League is serious about stamping out this culture, they need to deduct points or put in place a transfer embargo".

To further add to the family's woes, the boy now can not join any club until a compensation of 50,000 pounds is paid to Stoke City FC.

And worse, the youngster's footballing future is also left in limbo, due to a controversial rule that prevents him from playing for another team until Stoke City is paid 49,000 pounds in compensation.
