Despite Liverpool’s academy ban, Liverpool will manage to sign the youngster in the summer as he is not moving from another English-based side.
The young ‘keeper has impressed for the Czech Republican’s Under 19s side, and was getting attention from a few Premier League sides, but Liverpool came out on top in the race to get him with Southampton just missing out on his signature.
Jaros recently took part in a five-day trial at Kirkby where he must have impressed as he was offered a permanent contract.
The fee is believed to be around £300,000 for the young keeper, and the transfer was confirmed by Martin Krob, the chief executive of Slavia Praha.
He told Czech outlet Aktualne: “The agreement exists. Now we are dealing with the details and Jaros will become a Liverpool player in the summer.”
