Liverpool completes signing of Adam Lallana

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

Lallana, 26, is manager Brendan Rodgers's second signing of the summer and joins former team-mate Rickie Lambert at Anfield on a long-term deal.

The midfielder, who played for England during the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, made 265 appearances for Saints.
After completing his transfer, Lallana told Liverpool's official website: '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.'
Lallana is confident he can slot in seamlessly to the breath-taking style of football that carried Liverpool within touching distance of the Barclays Premier League title last season.
He said: 'Watching the run-in towards the end of last season was unbelievable, not just for myself but everyone involved in football.

'It got the hairs on the back of my neck standing up just watching them, and the style of football they were playing.

'Deep down, I was thinking to myself: hopefully one day I'll be able to play in that team. That dream has become a reality now, so I can't wait for that to get started.'
The 26-year-old forward became Liverpool's second signing of the summer following the £4m arrival of Southampton striker Rickie Lambert.
