Saints boss Scott Ruscoe has moved for a Liverpool starlet as his overhaul of the TNS squad continues.

Anfield defender Kane Lewis, a 20-year-old left back who joined Liverpool as a 16-year-old from Brentford in 2014, arrives at Park Hall this week to become the fourth new arrival of the close season.

Lewis signed professional terms with Liverpool in 2016 after making an instant early impression on incoming boss Jurgen Klopp, but although he featured regularly for the U18’s has found his chances at senior level harder to come by.

Able to play at centre back or at full-back, Lewis won praise for his positional play, aerial ability, and his reading of the game whilst in the Melwood academy set-up.

He joins a youthful looking slew of other new signings following the arrivals of Josh Hmami, 18, and Josh Nembhard, 20, last week, as TNS boss Ruscoe seeks to out his stamp on the side in his second year at the helm.

Speaking to the TNS club website earlier this week, Lewis said he was looking forward to getting started with the JD Welsh Premier League champions.

“I am very pleased to have finally put pen to paper with this amazing club and to see what the future holds,” he said.

“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”.

Scott Ruscoe commented: “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.”

Elsewhere Steve Saunders, who was released by TNS last week, has joined Scottish Premiership outfit Livingston.

Saunders, who made 39 appearances for the Saints over the past two seasons, has previously played for Dumbarton and Ross County and started his career as a youth team player at Motherwell.
