The former France striker - released by Sunderland on transfer deadline day - joins the Serie A club on a free transfer.

"I am very happy to have joined this great club," said Saha, who will wear the No 28 shirt, at a press conference on Wednesday evening.

"I trained with a great squad this afternoon. I am ready to play against Napoli at the weekend."

Lazio this week lost forward Miroslav Klose to a knee injury which will keep him out for up to two months.

And Saha, 34, is the chosen replacement despite a lean time at Sunderland, where he failed to score in five months.

Rodgers: Sterling can be striker

expect Pulis to have a nice Christmas dinner with his family- probably all sitting around the table wearing Christmas themed baseball caps, before he gets the call. Realistically he could end up at any number of clubs, it'll be interesting to see which club folds first.

s a Liverpool fan, I personally hate Palace. My pick would probably be Arsenal, which is funny because it seems the vast majority of their own fans don't even like them right now.
