Liverpool youngster Ben Doak could be set for a January transfer loan move to Nottingham Forest.
Just five days later, he signed his first professional contract with Liverpool at the age of 17.
Jurgen Klopp has made a point during his time as Liverpool boss to reward youngsters a chance in cup competitions and the prime example has just been rewarded with a long-term contract.
Forest have made plenty of signings recently
During Scotland's under-21 clash with Iceland, Doak impressed as he assisted Max Johnston's opening goal.
BBC Scotland were commentating on the match and confirmed that Forest had scouts at the match which has sparked links connecting the youngster to the team on Trentside.
After Doak's Liverpool debut, Klopp said: "That's Ben. His instructions were easy: do what you do all the time. He is really a lively boy, a smart player, good dribbler, fast, can use both legs.
"He's good. It was nice to watch, really nice to watch - him coming in and immediately a lot of things are obviously natural to him, which is really helpful. I am pretty sure his family was here tonight.
"I can remember when I saw the family at the AXA [Training Centre] when we signed the boy, how excited everybody was. Now having this night, it's the next step, it's cool. He showed up, obviously."
