Liverpool have signed Borussia Dortmund’s Switzerland right-back Philipp Degen on a free transfer.
The 25-year-old, former FC Basel full-back, will join the squad on July 1 when his contract with Borussia Dortmund expires.
Degen will compete for a regular spot with Alvaro Arbeloa and Steve Finnan, players that already occupy that position at Anfield.
Rafa Benitez said: “Philipp is still young but has gained great experience from playing in the Bundesliga with Borussia Dortmund and on the international stage with Switzerland.
He also played in the Champions League during his time with Basel and so is used to top level football.”
He is an offensive player with great energy and a winning mentality. His strength is going forward and I am confident he will be prove to be a quality addition to our squad.”
