Brad Jones, renowned Aussie goalkeeper and former Middlesbrough player has signed for Liverpool Football Club.
The club released a statement earlier, saying:
Liverpool have confirmed a £2.3m fee has been agreed with Middlesbrough for the transfer of Australian international goalkeeper Brad Jones.
The 28-year-old stopper passed a medical on Monday afternoon and has agreed personal terms. He is expected to complete the paperwork on a three-year contract on Tuesday.
The Australia international spent the early part of his career as understudy to Mark Schwarzer, before battling it out with Ross Turnbull to become first-choice at the Riverside at the start of the 2008-09 season.
During his time in the North-East he picked up a League Cup winner’s medal and was between the sticks for the club’s famous UEFA Cup semi-final victory over Steaua Bucharest back in 2006.
He has since won two caps for Australia and was named in their 2010 World Cup squad.
Jones will be expected to put the heat on Reina and Cavalieri from the off, and is happy to be here despite not being guaranteed first-team football.
Welcome to Liverpool, Brad!
