Liverpool have announced £60m signing of Dominik Szoboszlai from RB Leipzig on a five-year deal.
Newcastle had also been interested in the 22-year-old midfielder, but once Szoboszlai made clear his desire to move to Anfield, it removed all other interested parties from the equation.
The youngster told Liverpool’s official website: ‘It’s really, really good. I enjoyed the last [few] days and I’m looking forward to knowing everybody better.
‘The last three or four days went really long; it was not that easy. But in the end, I’m here, I’m happy and I can’t wait to get started.
‘[A] really historic club, good players, good coach, everything is good. For me, it was perfect to make the next step in a club like this. The fans, the stadium, everything is really good.’
