New signing confirmed & positive injury update – Latest Liverpool FC News

Monday saw Liverpool complete the signing of a new defender, while there was also some much-needed positive news on the injury front for the Reds.

 

A new signing!

It’s not the midfielder that some sections of supporters feel is needed, but Liverpool did actually complete a new signing today!

20-year-old centre-back Oludare Olufunwa has joined after a successful trial with the under-21s.

Olufunwa spent the summer with Barry Lewtas‘ side as one of two trialists in defence after his release from Southampton at the end of last season.

With loans for Rhys Williams and Billy Koumetio to Blackpool and Austria Wien, respectively, and a permanent switch for Tom Clayton to Blackpool, Liverpool swooped in to sign Olufunwa on a free transfer.

He will link up with Jarell Quansah, Lee Jonas and Terence Miles as Lewtas’ primary options at the heart of defence.

Tweet of the day and match of the night

Adam Lallana‘s Brighton beat Man United at Old Trafford on Sunday and this video of him explaining how they did it is simply brilliant.

No Premier League action tonight, but in the Championship, West Brom are hosting Watford at the Hawthorns if you need something to feed your football fix.
