Sturridge becomes a Red
By Nick Webster
Liverpool, who had been in talks with the 23-year-old's representatives during December, confirmed the striker had signed a long-term contract. The transfer fee is understood to be in the region of £12m.
Sturridge told Liverpool's website: "I am humbled and happy to be here. Brendan Rodgers said he sees me here for a long time, and I also see myself here for a long time. I've not signed here to play for a couple of years and then move on.
Sturridge scored 13 times in all competitions for Chelsea last season, including 11 in the Premier League.
But a hamstring injury has limited his opportunities this season and he has not featured for the European champions since the 2-1 defeat at West Brom on 17 November.
The forward started his career at Coventry City before being bought by Manchester City in 2006 as a 16-year-old in a deal worth an initial £50,000. He finished top-scorer as City lifted the FA Youth Cup in 2008 before joining Chelsea the following year.
