St Patrick's Athletic have announced the signing of goalkeeper Vitezslav Jaros on a season long loan from Liverpool.

The 19-year-old joins Pats having made the Liverpool bench on three occasions in the Champions League group stage this season against Ajax (twice) and FC Midtylland.

Jaros joined the Premier League Champions from Slavia Prague in 2017.

The Czech Republic underage international has won the FA Youth Cup for the Reds with Steven Gerrard as manager.

Jaros debuted for the Liverpool first team in a pre-season friendly against Tranmere in July 2019 and would later make the bench in a FA Cup 4th round replay with Shrewsbury in February 2020.

Saints Head Coach Stephen O’Donnell told Pats' media team: “I’m delighted to get a goalkeeper of Vitezslav's pedigree, he is an exciting addition to the squad and comes from a massive club with such a huge tradition in goalkeepers.”

“We are looking forward to working with him in pre-season, he has experience of being around the Liverpool first team and their goalkeepers like Alisson and Caoimhín Kelleher so we are very happy to have him on board.”
