Justin will provide competition for Ricardo Pereira though Championship clubs are expected to ask to take him on loan.

Brendan Rodgers has been looking for a young and exciting right-back to push Pereira, and they have moved quickly to get their man.

The English youngster, who is very comfortable on the ball, started out his playing career as a central midfielder but was converted into a full-back.
