The son of former Everton favourite Phil Jagielka has signed for Merseyside rivals Liverpool.

Zac, 13, is a versatile forward and is well thought of within the club’s academy having joined from a grassroots junior team.

Centre-back Jagielka made 385 appearances for Everton during 12 seasons at Goodison Park, but his boy will be turning out in the red of Liverpool’s Under-14s side.

Zac is said to be an all-round sportsman who also excels at golf, but sources believe he has a future in football.

Jagielka, who was capped 40 times by England, left Everton for hometown club Sheffield United in 2019.

The 38-year-old has played six times this season, including a man-of-the-match performance during the Blades’ 2-1 win at Manchester United last month.
