Liverpool fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are ecstatic after the Daily Mail revealed that they had signed Manchester City midfielder James Milner on a free transfer.
The England international turned down a £165,000-a-week deal from City as he seems determined to play more first team football as he turns 30 next year.
The Reds were keen to get this business done early this summer as they look to get over the loss of Steven Gerrard.
Not only does Milner want to play more frequent first team football but also he wants to play more centrally and this is something Liverpool can guarantee him.
This is uplifting news for Brendan Rodgers who is under a lot pressure and it is inevitable that all of his additions this summer will go under the spot light after his recruitment last summer was questionable.
Milner’s new deal is supposedly in the region of £110,000 a week and it is expected he is the first of many new faces at Anfield.
