Born just south of the Tyne, Liam is a central midfielder with good technical ability.

A creative playmaker who likes to pass as well as run with the ball, his idols are Andres Iniesta and Steven Gerrard, both whom Liam bases his own style of play on.

Liam, who supports Newcastle, has been hit by injury for the last two years but there's no doubting his quality and if he can stay fit this season, he could have a big campaign.
