Liverpool show they mean business with capture of 6th summer signing

The Reds have agreed to pay around €17.5m for Southampton defender Nathaniel Clyne.

LIVERPOOL’S BUSY SUMMER in the transfer market shows no signs of slowing down as they announced the arrival of Nathaniel Clyne on a long-term deal.

The 24-year-old began his career at Crystal Palace before moving to Southampton in 2012 and establishing himself as one of the best full-backs in the Premier League over the past three seasons.

Clyne, who will cost around €17.5 million (£12.5m) made his international debut for England last year and has won five senior caps.

“I’m delighted and it’s a dream move for me to come here and play for such a big club with all of its history,” Clyne told the club. “I can’t wait to get started.

“As soon as Liverpool showed their interest in me, I was happy and just wanted the deal to go through.

The gaffer has shown a lot of interest in me and this is a place where I can improve as a player, I think. It’s definitely a good opportunity to come here and try to fulfil my potential.

“I’ve played at Anfield before and know what the atmosphere is all about. It’s a great atmosphere and will make me rise to the challenge. I’m really looking forward to it and hopefully it can push me on to putting on good performances.”

Clyne joins James Milner, Danny Ings, Adam Bogdan, Joe Gomez and Roberto Firmino as the Reds’ sixth signing of the current transfer window.
