So there you have it. A deal that has been discussed at length appears now to have been sealed. The vastly experienced Danish international may well not be in the same league as Javier Mascherano, who today confirmed he wants to leave the club, but he is a cheap reliable alternative.
The 30 year old defensive midfielder has been a relative success in the Bundesliga, La Liga and Serie A and is clearly a player that Roy Hodgson rates as good enough to provide some steel in the Liverpool midfield and is the latest in a string of new additions to join the Anfield club since the new boss was installed.
