The New Saints snap up former Liverpool youngster Lewis
The New Saints have announced their fourth signing of the summer transfer window, and their third in as many days, as ex-Liverpool youth prospect Kane Lewis links up with the Welsh Premier League champions.
The arrival of 20-year-old Lewis continues TNS’ drive to bring in young players, following the arrivals of Josh Hmami, 18, and Joash Nembhard, 20.
Speaking to tnsfc.co.uk on the move, Lewis said: “I am very pleased to have finally put pen to paper with this amazing club and to see what the future holds.
I’m looking forward to the Champions League qualifiers and being a part of an ongoing trophy-winning club. I can’t wait to get started”.
The youngster began his career with Brentford, and while impressing a number of clubs, he would decide to move to Merseyside to join Liverpool.
The defender impressed manager Jurgen Klopp, and would go on to sign professional terms with the English giants.
However, the midfielder was released by the Reds in July of last year.
Commenting on Lewis’ arrival, manager Scott Ruscoe said: “It’s a very good signing for the football club, a versatile defender with excellent pedigree even at such a young age.
(He is) Comfortable in possession and will give us lots of options at the back.”
Lewis is a right back by trade, but has the versatility to fit in anywhere across the back line.
