Twenty-two-year-old striker and Liverpool academy graduate Paul Glatzel has today completed a permanent transfer to League Two side Swindon Town for an undisclosed fee.

Glatzel had been with Liverpool since the U9 level, and has thus spent more than a decade in red, albeit the young attacker never made a senior first team appearance for the club.

The young striker did captain the U18 side to win the FA Youth Cup in the 2018/19 season, and he has shown himself to be a prolific goalscorer at the Academy level.

Any hopes he might have had of a Liverpool breakthrough were set back by a knee injury which left him with a long road to recovery. Since his return he has completed multiple loans with nearby Tranmere Rovers, where he showed his promise, with the bulk of his first team minutes coming in the 2021-22 season when he made 21 appearances and scored six goals for the League Two side.

He will hope to kick on with regular game time and hopefully find a stable home at Swindon Town.
