Adam Lallana: Liverpool sign Southampton captain for £25m


Adam Lallana has completed his £25m move from Southampton to Liverpool.

Lallana, 26, completed a medical at the weekend and is manager Brendan Rodgers’ second summer signing, joining former team-mate Rickie Lambert at Anfield.

The midfielder, who was part of England’s World Cup squad in Brazil, made 265 Saints appearances.

“I am so excited for the next chapter of my career, coming to a special club like Liverpool,” said Lallana, who will take the Reds number 20 shirt.

“Hopefully I can settle in quickly, and I will give it my best throughout the whole time I’m here.

“I hope I can add something to the team and hopefully we can win trophies while I’m here, because that’s why I’m here – for success.”

Lallana earned a place on the PFA’s Premier League team of the year for his performances last season, when he was ever-present for Southampton, scoring nine goals.

Liverpool open their Premier League campaign against Southampton at Anfield on 16 August.
