Deal done: Ian Ayre and Daniel Sturridge shake on it

The 23-year-old striker had a medical at Melwood last week and completed the formalities on a long-term contract earlier on Wednesday.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers had made Sturridge his priority signing for January, and will be delighted to get the deal done so quickly.

"I am humbled and happy to be here," said Sturridge.

"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."

Sturridge will wear the number 15 shirt at Liverpool, the club have confirmed.

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
