Another done deal, Reds!
Liverpool have completed the £12.5m capture of Nathaniel Clyne from Southampton, who will replace the outgoing Glen Johnson at right-back.
We’ve been working on the signing all summer, having initially had a £10m offer rejected – but have now got it done – making the English international 24-year-old our sixth summer signing following deals for James Milner, Roberto Firmino, Joe Gomez, Adam Bogdan and Danny Ings.
Most Liverpool fans seem to be pretty adamant we’ve acquired a good defender at a reasonable price, too…
The plan now is Liverpool have their number 2 (Clyne) sorted for the next eight seasons. #lfc (Chris Bascombe)

Clyne an upgrade on Johnson. Milner an upgrade on Allen. Firmino an upgrade on Sterling. Bogdan an upgrade on Jones. Positive so far — Dave Boon (@dave_boon) July 1, 2015
Pleased the Clyne deal is finally complete. #LFC

Clyne for 12.5m is a steal

That price for Clyne is decent good buy from Liverpool. — JT (@joshbosh_290) July 1, 2015
Clyne to #LFC offcially. Congrats.

Clyne’s a good buy 4 Liverpool, but can’t understand why MUFC didn’t go for him. They need a decent RB, as well as a decent LB and 2 x CB. — Andy Smith (@andrewdsmith9) July 1, 2015
Nathaniel Clyne is a hell of a signing to be fair

Liverpool finally got that bulk discount from Southampton. Pretty solid price for Clyne. — O.S. (@OSingh91) July 1, 2015
Excellent signings so far #LFC. Superb to see Clyne deal done. Milner will prove to be shrewd addition to midfield & don’t forget Origi!
