Liverpool transfer news
The deal, which was confirmed on our official website earlier in the day, sees Clyne become our sixth new signing of the summer, following in the footsteps of James Milner, Danny Ings, Adam Bogdan, Joe Gomez and Roberto Firmino.
Clyne, 24, spent three years with Southampton. He made more than 100 appearances in all competitions during his time on the South Coast, helping the Saints establish themselves as a fully-fledged Premier League outfit. That period in his career culminated in him helping Southampton qualify for the Europa League at the end of last season.
He was one of the stand-out players for Ronald Koeman’s side last term, scoring against Liverpool on the opening day of the campaign before continuing to impress as the months wore on. His form earned international recognition at the end of last year and he now finds himself as a regular in Roy Hodgson’s squad.
Here’s what Clyne had to say…
I’m very proud and honoured to have signed for @LFC it’s a special club with a lot of history and looking forward to getting started now.
