Liverpool F.C.’s agents visit Scotland

April 1, 1898
For some days past the agents of the Liverpool Club have been endeavouring to come to an agreement for the transfer of John Walker and Tom Robertson, the Hearts’ left wing, and it is reported that they have been successful, the transfer money being stated at €175 for each player, or €350 for the two. The club has offered them, it is stated, €4 per week all the year round, but Walker is reported to be desirous of even better terms.
