The England midfielder has long been linked with a move to Anfield and the deal has now been confirmed by the Merseyside club, with Lallana signing a long-term contract at the club.

Upon signing, the 26-year-old said: “I’ve been granted my wish to play at such a fantastic football club, in Champions League football and competing for Premier League titles.” 

The Reds swooped to secure the services of the 26-year-old today as he arrived from Southampton to become the club’s second summer acquisition.

Lallana, who has just returned from the World Cup finals with England, has excelled in the Barclays Premier League with the Saints over the past two seasons – and Liverpool manager, Brendan Rodgers is confident he’ll feel right at home at Anfield.

“We are delighted to have secured the services of one of the Premier League’s top talents in signing Adam Lallana,” the boss told Liverpoolfc.com at Melwood.

“What is apparent about Adam is that his character is on a par with his talent.

“He is an exceptional young man and someone who has a love for the game – and, most importantly, a desire to progress and improve.

“Adam is motivated by being the best he can be and being part of something special. We believe he fits right in with what we are trying to do at Liverpool.

“We have seen, over the past two seasons in the Barclays Premier League, he has a tactical awareness to adapt to what is required of him and to put the team above his personal ambitions.

“He has leadership skills and personal qualities that make him a special commodity and I am delighted we have acted decisively to make sure he is wearing a Liverpool shirt next season.

“Adam is aware there will be great competition for places at this club and he is hungry to improve further. We are confident he will fit perfectly with the culture we have at Liverpool.

“I’m excited about working with Adam and helping him to progress even further.”
