Liverpool have confirmed their sixth transfer of the summer with the signing of England defender Nathaniel Clyne.

The deal for the Southampton right-back is thought to be worth in the region of £12million.

Former Crystal Palace player Clyne has penned a five-year deal with the Reds.

Clyne joins the likes of James Milner, Danny Ings, Roberto Firmino and Adam Bodgan at Anfield.

"I'm delighted and it's a dream move for me to come here and play for such a big club with all of its history. I can't wait to get started," Clyne told

"As soon as Liverpool showed their interest in me, I was happy and just wanted the deal to go through.

"The gaffer has shown a lot of interest in me and this is a place where I can improve as a player, I think. It's definitely a good opportunity to come here and try to fulfil my potential.

"I've played at Anfield before and know what the atmosphere is all about. It's a great atmosphere and will make me rise to the challenge. I'm really looking forward to it and hopefully it can push me on to putting on good performances."
