The 32-year old comes in from Manchester City on a free transfer due to his contract at the Ethiad Stadium having expired.
He joins the likes of Daniel Agger, Martin Skrtel, Sebasitan Coates and Martin Kelly in fighting for a first team place at centre-back.
He was officially revealed to the press today via the club’s official website and obligatory photo shoot next to various signs and benches at Melwood.

@thisisanfield He's lazy, past his best and will keep Coates/Kelly out the team. I struggle to find anything appealing about this deal.
