"The 19-year-old will immediately be loaned back to the French club for the duration of the 2014-15 season."

The Belgian international was able to showcase his potential during the World Cup, after first-choice striker Romelu Lukaku failed to during the group phase, which saw the Ostend native start in each of the two knockout games.

Prior to earning a starting spot, he was able to tally a goal and an assist, coming off the bench, in their match against Russia and South Korea, respectively.

"I am very, very happy and delighted a club as big as Liverpool showed interest in me. I'm very excited," said the promising youngster.

"I know it's a club with a great history, great fans and a lot of great players. For me, Liverpool is one of the greatest clubs in the world and I'm very excited to be part of this great history."
