New Liverpool signing Diego Cavalieri has said his final goodbyes to his Palmeiras fans.

The Brazilian goalkeeper is joining Liverpool in a £3 million deal, which was thrashed out last weekend.

"I am very grateful to the Palmeiras for the opportunity they gave to me," the 6ft 4in shot-stopper told Globoesporte. "I always received much affection from the fans, the players, the employees and the directors.

"I go with Palmeiras in my heart forever."
