Liverpool will reportedly pay Derby County £100,000 if 16-year-old Kaide Gordon makes his debut in the Carabao Cup tonight as expected, which has caused a stir among fans of the East Midlands club.
The teenager is a product of the Rams academy and was highly rated at Pride Park before he was sold to the Anfield outfit earlier this year.
According to The Telegraph, the sale of Gordon earned Derby an initial £1 million but that could rise to £3 million due to add-ons.
The report claims that the Championship club will receive £100,000 should the attacking midfielder make his Liverpool senior debut tonight as expected.
Are these 22 Derby County stats real or fake?
Gordon was omitted from the U23s squad for the game against Leeds United on Sunday hinting at his inclusion in Jurgen Klopp’s squad for the Carabao Cup tie against Norwich City this evening.
The financial windfall is likely to be well received by the East Midlands club given their current situation.

It was announced on Friday that Derby were set to go into administration – a decision that will bring with it a subsequent 12-point deduction.
