Liverpool Sign Cissokho On Loan

Liverpool has announced the signing of Valencia defender Aly Cissokho on a season-long loan deal.

The 25-year-old has been training with the Reds after undergoing a medical at the Merseyside outfit this week.

The French left-back is Liverpool's fifth signing of the summer transfer window and joins Brendan Rodgers’ side to add depth to the squad, with Jose Enrique the only recognized left-back.

Cissokho told the club's official website:” I feel extremely proud to be here and I'm proud of all the hard work I've put in so far throughout my career.

"I've always dreamt of one day signing for a really legendary club. I've been lucky enough to play for a few top sides and so to now get the chance to play for a club like Liverpool, it's just fantastic.

"It's really pleasing when a club like Liverpool shows interest in you, and when that interest becomes more serious, you really can't wait for the move to go through.

"Now that the transfer has been completed, I'm really happy.

"I hope to feature in as many games as possible. I know it's going to be quite tough and I need to get to work as soon as possible as pre-season is over and we are into the league program."
