Liverpool has completed the signing of highly rated United States youth international Marc Pelosi.

The 17-year-old midfielder will join the Premier League team's academy squad following his move from De Anza Force Club in California on Tuesday.

Pelosi has played 28 times for the U.S.'s Under-17 side, scoring eight goals, and captained the team in this year's World Cup in Mexico.

Liverpool academy director Frank McParland says ''we're determined to identify the best possible talent globally and I'm delighted we've been able to bring Marc into the club.''

Liverpool is owned by American investment company Fenway Sports Group.
