Liverpool seal Allen signing

Liverpool have completed the signing of Joe Allen from Swansea, they confirmed last night.



Reported in the Telegraph the deal was worth £15 million and was finalized soon after the 22-year-old returned from Olympic duty with Team GB. Rodgers has spoken highly of Allen and is convinced he is one of the missing pieces in Liverpool’s puzzle, he said:


“This boy, when you see him play, you’d think he was a Spanish player, a real European player. I would have paid many more millions for this kid. He is a unique player in that he’s a British player who doesn’t give the ball away. When he comes into this team you’ll see the difference he can make.”


The Welsh midfielder is the second summer signing for Rodgers since he arrived at Anfield, adding to striker Fabio Borini who scored his first goal for the club on Thursday night in the Europa League and Rodgers is excited by the prospect of bringing one his Swansea stars to the club, adding:


“He’s incredible on the ball, his intelligence for a 22 year old is frightening, his game understanding is very, very good and he’s in love with the football. He loves the ball… I’m excited about the prospect of him fitting in with our front four. Joe will fit in with that well, but there is a lot of improvement to make in the team. It will get better and better as each day goes on.”


This is the second transfer completion of the week with the Reds after another Welsh player found himself switching clubs. This time it was Craig Bellamy who made a return to Cardiff this time on a free transfer. The 33-year-old striker had spent a season on loan at his home side and now has singed on a permanent deal.
