Liverpool have confirmed that full back Aly Cissokho has joined the club on a season-long loan deal from Valencia.

Brendan Rodgers has finally got his man. The 25-year-old, who is described as a “sprightly left-back with good speed and stamina,” passed a medical earlier today before signing a deal that will see him join the club alongside new signings Iago Aspas, Luis Alberto, Simon Mignolet and Kolo Toure.

Cissokho told Liverpoolfc.com:

“I’m very happy to be here. I think we have a great team and great fans and together we can achieve big things.

“It’s going to be a great experience to be able to rub shoulders with the club’s top-quality players. I have experience in the game, but coming here there will still be lots of things to learn and discover as I work with everyone every day.

“I can learn from my new manager, get to know the new style of play here, familiarize myself with different opposition teams and learn the language. It’s going to be a great experience for me, and of course playing for the club for the first time is something I’m excited about.”

Cissokho has played in the UEFA Champions League for Porto, Lyon and Valencia.
