EVERTON hero Phil Jagielka's son Zac has signed for Liverpool in a shock move, according to reports.
Jagielka Sr, 38, played 385 times for the Toffees during his 12-year stay at Goodison Park.
The 40-cap former England defender even spent six years at captain.
But now son Zac, 13, has joined Liverpool's academy from a local grassroots team after showing genuine promise, according to the Daily Mail.
The report claims Jagielka Jr is a gifted sportsman, including showing talent as a golfer.
But Liverpool believe Zac has a real shot at becoming a professional footballer after snatching him up from a local team.
His dad, Phil, is now back at Sheffield United – where he began his senior career in 2000.
Despite his advancing years, Jagielka put in a Man of the Match display as the Blades beat Manchester United 2-1 last month.
Liverpool take on local rivals Everton in the second Merseyside derby of the season on Saturday, with kick-off 5.30pm.
The feisty first showdown in October saw Jordan Pickford end Virgil van Dijk's season with a horror lunge.
