Reds confirm Lambert signing
Liverpool have made their first signing of the summer after confirming striker Rickie Lambert has completed his move from Southampton.
The 32-year-old, currently out in Miami with England's World Cup squad, underwent a medical on Saturday after a fee of £4million was agreed with the Saints.
Lambert is understood to have signed a two-year deal with the club who released him as a 15-year-old.
Born in Kirkby, Merseyside, Lambert was a member of Liverpool's academy until his mid-teens, after which he found himself playing in the lower leagues for the likes of Macclesfield, Stockport, Rochdale and Bristol Rovers before finding success at Southampton.
He will provide some much-needed back-up to strikers Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge and while he may have to content himself with a supporting role from the bench at Anfield, the chance to rejoin his boyhood club and play in the Champions League was an opportunity he did not want to miss.
