Liverpool have today confirmed the signing of England international midfielder Joe Cole on a four year deal.

The former Chelsea man will undergo a medical examination in the next two days before formally completing his move to Anfield.

Roy Hodgson has been courting the former West Ham man since arriving as the new Liverpool manager and has finally landed his man.

Tottenham and Arsenal were seen as the favourites to sign Cole, with West Ham also putting a big money offer on the table, but Hodgson managed to persuade him to move to Liverpool despite the lack of Champions League football.

A reported wage of £90,000 has been mentioned in the press this week, with Carlo Ancelotti suggesting money is Cole’s motivating factor – but West Ham are reported to have offered him £125,000 per week.

It is unknown which squad number Cole will wear, but many will see him as a natural for the number seven.
