Ex-Liverpool star Bobby Duncan – Steven Gerrard's cousin – joins Spanish third division minnows Real Balompedica Linense | The Sun

FORMER Liverpool star Bobby Duncan has signed for Real Balompedica Linense.

Duncan, who is a cousin of Reds legend Steven Gerrard, has had a turbulent career since leaving Anfield.

He showed great promise as a youngster at Liverpool, scoring 18 goals in 20 games for the under-18s in 2018-19.

But he has now joined his fourth club after penning a four-year deal with Real Balompedica Linense.

The Spanish club confirmed his arrival, saying: "Real Balompédica Linense is pleased to announce the signing of British midfielder Bobby Duncan until 2025.

"The new and talented attacker is a footballer with great projection, with good individual technical quality, offensive combination capacity and final pass, precision with his left foot and a goalscorer."

Duncan, 21, will be hoping for regular game time at the Spanish third division side after a difficult few years.

The striker played under Wayne Rooney at Derby County for the last two seasons but made just one appearance.

He also struggled in his year at Fiorentina, failing to break into the first-team and only scoring four goals in 12 games for the under-19s.

Duncan rejected a new contract offer from Liverpool to move to Italy, but is now trying to get his career back on track.
