Adam Lallana joins Liverpool

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

The St Albans-born player is the second Saints player to join Brendan Rogers’ team this summer following the signing of Rickie Lambert.

The 26-year-old, who played for England during the World Cup in Brazil, made 265 appearances for Southampton.

Speaking to Liverpool’s offical website, Lallana, who will wear number 20, said: “I’m so excited for the next chapter of my career, coming to a special club like Liverpool. I’m quite humbled and I just can’t wait to get started.

“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.”
