Liverpool Sign Naby Keita

Liverpool have completed the signing of Naby Keita from German side RB Leipzig for a club record fee, but the player will only officially join the club in July 2018.

According to the BBC, Liverpool have paid a £48m release clause that comes into effect in July 2018.

Keita has been one of the Reds major target all summer long, but their bids – including one close to £70m – have been rejected by Leipzig, who stood their ground in saying he’s not for sale.

The Guinean international’s £48m fee will surpass the £35 million Liverpool paid Newcastle for Andy Carroll in 2011.
