Hardy joined the Championship side in 2016/17 campaign after a short stint with Manchester City.

Jurgen Klopp will hope to boost his attack-line with the presence of the promising star who his former coach Neil MacFarlane described as prodigy, while hailing the Liverpool move as a giant step on his career.

''Joe has been here for a number of years and last year he had a pretty fruitful season in terms of being the top goalscorer and playing a number of games,'' MacFarlane.

“He's perhaps come to the end of his time with the club in terms of the strategy, and to go to a club the size of Liverpool can only be good for him.

“The club are flying at the moment, they're European champions, and potential Premier League winners, so being in and around that environment can only be good for Joe.
