MK Dons teenager Seyi Ojo has joined Premier League side Liverpool for an undisclosed fee and will go straight into their academy.

The 14-year-old striker has won two England Under-16 caps.

"This is the opportunity of a lifetime for Seyi which has proved far too difficult to turn down," Dons chairman Pete Winkelman told the club websiteexternal-link.

"There has been a lot of interest and speculation regarding Seyi which he has coped with admirably."

He added: "We are extremely proud to have Seyi in our record books as our first schoolboy to receive an international cap.

"Everyone at the club would like to wish Seyi the best of luck in his future and we all look forward to the day he runs out at Anfield."

Ojo, who has been with the Dons' academy since 2007, played for the club's under-18s aged 13, was a regular in the under-16s and has trained with the senior squad.

It was reported in October that Chelsea were ready to spend £1.5m to take the youngster to Stamford Bridge.
