Liverpool agree £6.5m deal for Aberdeen's Ramsay

Liverpool have agreed a £6.5m deal to sign Aberdeen right-back Calvin Ramsay, with the Reds paying an initial £4m up front and £2.5m in add-ons.

The 18-year-old is now due to travel down to Liverpool to finalise personal terms and undergo a medical.

Liverpool had been locked in talks with the Dons over the defender after Jurgen Klopp's side made an initial £4m offer, with £2m in add-ons.

However, it is understood Aberdeen were holding firm and wanted at least £5m up-front, with £5m in add-ons.

But the £6.5m fee agreed ensures Ramsay will become Aberdeen's record sale, surpassing their current record of £3m from Nottingham Forest for Scott McKenna. The Dons have also received an extra £1m for the centre-back this summer after Forest were promoted to the Premier League.

Ramsay is set to become Liverpool's third signing this summer after the arrivals of Darwin Nunez in a club-record £85m deal from Benfica and Fabio Carvalho, who signed from Fulham.
