Tiago Ilori: Signs for Liverpool

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 Liverpool's 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."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
