Liverpool have completed the signing of Joe Allen from Swansea.
Allen put pen-to-paper on a long-term contract on Friday evening after the Reds had met the £15million release clause in his contract at the Liberty Stadium.
Allen was at Anfield on Thursday night to watch Liverpool beat FC Gomel 3-0 in the their Europa League qualifier after earlier in the day informing Swansea that he wanted to be reunited with former Swans boss Brendan Rodgers.
Rodgers had admitted after the win over Gomel that he expected to be reunited with the 22-year-old.
Speaking to the club's official website on Friday night, Allen said Rodgers was key to the move going through.
"Look at the players and staff, and obviously the supporters, and everything is there for us to be successful," said the Wales international.
"I'm looking forward to being part of some great years ahead for Liverpool Football Club.
"I have a lot of faith that Brendan Rodgers can bring success, that's one of the reasons I'm here. I wanted to be part of this project, his project, and I've really got a good feeling - as I'm sure all the players here have - that this football club is going to go from strength to strength in the next couple of seasons.
"Brendan is so passionate about his football. He works day in, day out to improve the team and everyone individually. Everyone wants to work alongside someone who has that way about them.
"One of his best things is his man management, it's second to none. He commands the respect of everyone and it's no different for me.
"To join back up with him was definitely a big pull for me."
