Milner will earn, according to The Guardian, around £150,000 per week at Anfield and has been lured by a “more regular role with Liverpool – and in his preferred central midfield position.”

Milner will add much needed experience to Liverpool’s young squad and a winning mentality. He’s been linked with even becoming the new club captain, taking over the armband from Steven Gerrard.

We round up the best of the reactions from social media.

“Quality player in my opinion. Will give you 100%. Him and Can in the centre of midfield would be ideal. But Rogers will probably play him in goal…” – Anto on Facebook

“This is a great signing, especially for free, he was one of city’s best players last year, he gives 110% every game, and chips in with goals, just what we need” – Matt on Facebook
