Liverpool sign Joe Cole

Liverpool have beaten off competition from Spurs and Arsenal to land the 28 year old Joe Cole on a free transfer.

Joe Cole’s contract ended with Chelsea this summer.

Joe is to undergo a medical before the transfer is completed, but he is set to sign a four year deal at Anfield.  It is believed that Liverpool have been tracking the player for the last few months, watching to see if he would sign an extension with Chelsea.

A statement from Liverpool FC reads:

‘Liverpool FC are delighted to confirm the signing of Joe Cole on a four-year deal.

‘The England midfielder has agreed personal terms with the Reds and will undergo a medical in the next 48 hours.

‘Cole becomes the club’s second signing of the summer after Milan Jovanovic.

With Yossi Benayoun having travelled in the opposite direction earlier this month, this deal can be seen as a direct replacement.

In the past two seasons Joe has made 39 Premier League appearances, and has scored 4 times.

We wish Joe the very best of luck in his new Anfield career.
