The highly-rated 18-year-old arrived in Liverpool earlier in the month and underwent a trial at the club’s Kirkby Academy which has been so successful that the Anfield outfit have decided to take the player permanently.
Falkirk’s young impressor made his debut for the Scottish Championship side in November 2015 at just 16 years of age and has made 17 outings for the Bairns this season.
Gallacher has also featured for the Scottish national youth set up having made three appearances for the U16s and six for the U17s.
The youngster is being considered has been dubbed as one for the future by the Liverpool Echo and is not thought to be in Jurgen Klopp’s imminent plans which means the defender will head into Neil Critchley’s U23 side.
Gallacher’s arrival at the club could mean that he will be ready in time for the youth side’s match against Derby County to be played on Sunday.
