Anfield boss snaps up out of contract England man, just as we said he would yesterday.
Liverpool have swooped to secure the services of England international Joe Cole on a four-year deal, subject to a medical.
The talented midfielder became a free agent at the start of the month when his contract with Chelsea expired with the Blues electing not to extend his seven-year stay at Stamford Bridge.
New Reds boss Roy Hodgson claimed at the weekend that he had not held talks with the former West Ham player, but the deal has now been concluded.
A statement on the club’s official website read: “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.” (Sky Sports)
As we had reported yesterday, this deal is now done. So all those non believers can just start bloody well believing us now. What do Liverpool fans think about the signing?
