Liverpool has completed the signing of Calvin Ramsay on a 5 years deal

Calvin William Ramsay is a Scottish professional footballer who will play for Premier League club Liverpool as a right back. He has previously played for Scottish Premiership club Aberdeen.After progressing through the youth ranks at Aberdeen, Ramsay made his debut as a late substitute against Dundee United in March 2020, under caretaker manager Paul Sheerin, and went on to make another five appearances in his first season with the senior team. He made his European debut for the club against Swedish side BK Häcken in July 2021 in a UEFA Conference League qualifier, starting at right back in a 5–1 win and assisting the first goal of the game. Ramsay won the SFWA Young Player of the Year award for 2021–22, his only full season with Aberdeen. He was sold to Liverpool in June 2022 for an initial fee of £4.2 million, which represented a club-record sale. The deal for the Scotland Under-21 player also includes £2.5m of potential add-ons and a 17.5% sell-on clause.There are no plans to send Ramsay on loan and he will join up with Jurgen Klopp's first team for pre-season.

"I'm just buzzing and it's a dream come true really to be here," the defender said.

"It was a dream come true to play for Aberdeen, and now to be at one of the biggest, if not the biggest club in the world, it's a massive achievement and I'm looking forward to trying to show the fans what I've got."

Ramsay made 33 appearances for Aberdeen last season, scoring one goal and registering nine assists.

He has made 39 appearances in total for the Scottish Premiership side after rising through the youth ranks.

The full-back was named young player of the year by the Scottish Football Writers' Association in April after an impressive breakthrough campaign that saw him linked with a host of European clubs.

Ramsay said the development of young players, such as Trent Alexander-Arnold and Harvey Elliott, was one of the reasons he joined the Reds.

"There's obviously a pathway here," he said.

"That's one of the reasons I chose it as well. It's not just a massive club, they give young players chances in the first team.

"So if I can come in in pre-season, put my mark down, then there's no reason why I can't push to get in the first-team squad."

He is Liverpool's third arrival this summer following £64m Uruguay striker Darwin Nunez from Benfica and £5m Fulham forward Fabio Carvalho.
