Adam Lallana

Liverpool have confirmed they have agreed a deal with Southampton for Adam Lallana's transfer to Anfield.

"Liverpool Football Club are delighted to announce the signing of Adam Lallana from Southampton. The 26-year-old has put pen to paper on a long-term deal with the Reds after passing a medical at Melwood," a statement read of Liverpool's official website.

The 26-year-old was in England's squad for the World Cup, where they crashed out of the group stages of the tournament. Lallana has expressed his delight after completing his switch to the Merseyside club.

"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," Lallana said.

"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," he added.

The midfielder becomes Brendan Rodgers' third signing of the summer transfer window after the Reds signed Rickie Lambert from Southampton and have already agreed a deal in principle with Bayer Leverkusen for Emre Can.

The former Swansea manager has confirmed Liverpool are still working hard to bring in more players this summer as the Reds look to strengthen the squad, with the return of Champions League football next season.
