Liverpool have completed the loan signing of Valencia left-back Aly Cissokho.
After the news was broken by the player’s brother, the Reds confirmed that the deal has been done.
The 25-year-old has agreed to move to Anfield for a season-long loan.
He told the club’s official website: “I feel extremely proud to be here and I’m proud of all the hard work I’ve put in so far throughout my career.
“I’ve always dreamt of one day signing for a really legendary club. I’ve been lucky enough to play for a few top sides and so to now get the chance to play for a club like Liverpool, it’s just fantastic.
“I’ve always said, along with a lot of other French players, that I really love the English league, and although I’ve been fortunate enough to have played at some big clubs, in the back of my mind, I’ve always wanted to play in England.
“It’s really pleasing when a club like Liverpool shows interest in you, and when that interest becomes more serious, you really can’t wait for the move to go through. Now that the transfer has been completed, I’m really happy.
“I hope to feature in as many games as possible. I know it’s going to be quite tough and I need to get to work as soon as possible as pre-season is over and we are into the league programme.”
