Liverpool FC youngster Jerome Sinclair has turned down the offer by the club of a new deal and asked to leave, according to reports in ESPN FC.
Jerome Sinclair, 18, is highly regarded at Liverpool FC and was handed his Premier League debut as a substitute in the 1-1 draw with Chelsea FC at Stamford Bridge towards the end of 2014-15 season.
The striker became the youngest player ever to play for Liverpool FC when he made his debut in a Capital One Cup win at West Brom in September 2012 at the age of 16 years and six days.
The player was sent on a loan spell at Wigan Athletic last season but made just one appearance for the championship side who struggled in the league.
With his future in the balance, he was not included in Liverpool FC squad for the preseason trip to Asia and Australia.
Further fueling the exit rumor is this tweet by Sinclair

Losing Sinclair would be a blow to Liverpool FC with the player tipped as one of the best prospects to emerge from Liverpool FC academy in recent years.
However the fact that the player made only one appearance for struggling Wigan Athletic indicates he is not progressing the way Liverpool FC would have hoped when they fast tracked him to be the youngest player in the clubs’ history.
