Liverpool have completed the signing of Daniel Sturridge from Chelsea in a deal believed to be worth around £12million.

Sturridge had passed a medical before Christmas and had agreed personal terms before the transfer window reopened on Tuesday.

As reported on Wednesday morning, the 23-year-old was set to become the first big mover of the January transfer window (see Related Articles), and Liverpool confirmed the deal on Wednesday afternoon, with Sturridge signing a "long-term" contract.

"I am humbled and happy to be here," the England forward told the club's official website.

"Brendan Rodgers said he sees me here for a long time - and I also see myself here for a long time. I've not signed here to play for a couple of years and then move on.

"I've signed to be here for as long as possible. It's a humongous club - for me, one of the biggest in the world - and to have the fans and world-class players we have here is amazing."

Chelsea issued a statement confirming Sturridge had moved to Merseyside for an undisclosed fee.

"Chelsea Football Club thanks Daniel for his part in the very successful seasons we enjoyed during his time with us. And we wish him all the best for the future."
