Liverpool look likely to sign Hungarian defender Kristof Polgar after a successful loan spell at Anfield.

The 16 year old, currently owned by Careers Management Group, has spent two spells on trial on Merseyside in January and February.

With Liverpool having missed out on a move for Vegard Forren, after the Norwegian pulled out of a trial with The Reds, but the club look likely to secure a deal for Polgar.

Liverpool are looking to recruit more players for their youth team.

Tibor Pataky, CMG director said: "Kristof trialled with Liverpool on two occasions earlier in the year, and he and his parents are currently in Liverpool enjoying the hospitality of the club.

"We are looking forward to an exciting day, and in a few days the Hungarian presence at Liverpool will be extended."

Polgar won't be alone in being the only Hungarian at Liverpool, with goalkeeper Peter Gulacsi, who has made one appearance this season, and Under-21 captain Krisztian Adorjan, who netted against Southampton last week, also in the ranks.

Under-21 boss Alex Inglethorpe has spoken of his desire to bring more local based players into the youth squad, to continue the recent history of Liverpool's first team including players from the area.

"There is so much history and tradition here and local players have always been a cornerstone of Liverpool's success. They've been the lifeblood of the club," Inglethorpe said.

"I recognise there's still room for a Raheem [Sterling] and the club have done well recruiting the best young talent. That side of it is very healthy but it's vital we bring through home-grown players.

"They are the ones supporters identify with the most. Those who come through the ranks and devote their career to one club are the ones who are afforded the legendary status.

"My job is to develop players to have a career here and I would happily come bottom of the reserve league if we sent the next Steven Gerrard to Melwood [the location of where the first-team train].

"For us to have young talent from within the area is everything. I'm desperate for that one player who can go on to become an iconic figure at Liverpool in the way that Steven Gerrard or Jamie Carragher have done."
