Liverpool swoop for Ilori
Liverpool have confirmed the signing of Portuguese defender Tiago Ilori from Sporting Lisbon.
The 20-year-old, who watched Sunday's 1-0 Barclays Premier League win over Manchester United from the directors' box at Anfield, penned his deal after undergoing a medical at the club's Melwood training ground.
Ilori, who becomes Brendan Rodgers' sixth summer acquisition following Kolo Toure, Iago Aspas, Luis Alberto, Simon Mignolet and Aly Cissokho, told the club's official website: "It feels great being a Liverpool player - coming to the Premier League has always been a dream for me.
"I'm going to try to achieve everything I can. I want to play as much as possible and we'll see what the future holds. I will give my all and try my best to help the team."
