Liverpool sign Sotirios Kyrgiakos

Greece international Sotirios Kyrgiakos has completed his transfer to Liverpool and signed a two-year contract.

The 30-year-old has agreed a two-year contract at Anfield and is likely to be thrusted into the first team squad immediately, as Martin Skrtel and Daniel Agger struggle with injuries.

Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez snapped up Kyrgiakos for £2million, and said of his latest signing: "He has had experience in Scotland with Rangers, and in Germany with Eintracht Frankfurt as well as with the Greek national side. He is strong and good in the air, and we were looking for experience and he is the perfect answer."
