Liverpool Football Club is delighted to confirm the signing of striker Iago Aspas, subject to international clearance.

The deal with Celta Vigo is now complete, and the 25-year-old has penned a long-term contract after passing a medical at Melwood.

Aspas scored 12 goals and claimed seven assists during 34 appearances for relegation-threatened Celta last term.

The Spanish star can play through the middle or out wide and represents the club’s third piece of business this summer following the deal in principle for Man City defender Kolo Toure and the signing this weekend of Luis Alberto from Sevilla.
