Liverpool sign Aspas

Iago Aspas has joined Liverpool

Liverpool have confirmed the signing of striker Iago Aspas from Celta Vigo.

The 25-year-old, who scored 12 goals for Primera Division club Celta last season, has signed a long-term contract with the Reds after passing his medical at Melwood.

The deal is subject to international clearance, Liverpool announced on their website.Liverpool, who announced last week they had reached an agreement in principle to sign Aspas, did not disclose the transfer fee but it is believed to be around £7.7million.

Celta's successful fight against relegation from the Primera Division on the final day of the season earlier this month held up progress.

The Spaniard is Liverpool's third signing of the summer after agreeing a deal for Man City defender Kolo Toure and on Saturday completing the capture of Luis Alberto from Sevilla.
