Liverpool today completed the signing of midfielder Joe Allen from Swansea City, triggering a release clause of £15 million in his contract. The 22 year old successfully completed the medical today and is reunited with former Boss Brendan Rodgers.
“I feel incredible. Everyone knows the history of this club, it’s a massive club, and I’m delighted to have joined. The passion that people here have for football is something I share and I want to be part of that. I’m looking forward to being part of some great years ahead for Liverpool Football Club.”
The boss also confirmed,the fans can expect further new faces at Anfield before 31 of august after Allen’s Signing.
“We need to make a number of signings before the window shuts in order to help the players already here. The loss of a few players has made the squad depth shallow, but a lot of hard work is going on behind the scenes to bring in new faces.”
How do you rate our new signing? Do you feel Liverpool overpaid for Allen? or have we made a signing that will dramatically improve our midfield?
