London – Liverpool have signed France international defender Mamadou Sakho and Portuguese centre-back Tiago Ilori, as the pair became the first confirmed arrivals at an English Premier League club on transfer deadline day.
The duo, who watched Liverpool’s 1-0 league win over champions and arch-rivals Manchester United at Anfield yesterday, signed their contracts after completing medicals at the Reds’ Melwood training ground complex.
Their arrival at northwest side Liverpool meant Reds manager Brendan Rodgers had now signed seven players during the transfer window, the duo following Kolo Toure, Iago Aspas, Luis Alberto, Simon Mignolet and Aly Cissokho to Anfield.
Liverpool are currently top of the Premier League, with their victory over United meaning they are the only team in the division with a perfect played three, won three record so far this season.
