Liverpool have completed the signing of Iago Aspas from La Liga side Celta Vigo.

The 25-year-old forward is a product of Celta’s academy and made his debut during the 2007-08 season before solidifying his place in the starting line-up the following year.

As the focal point of the club’s attack, he lead them to promotion at the end of the 2011-12 season after bagging 23 goals, before scoring a respectable 12 upon Celta’s return to La Liga.

And he has been rewarded with a move to the Premier League.

A statement on Liverpool’s website read: "Liverpool Football Club are delighted to confirm the signing of striker Iago Aspas, subject to international clearance.

"The deal with Celta Vigo is now complete and the 25-year-old has penned a long-term contract after passing a medical at Melwood."
