Liverpool signing Adam Lallana has taken out a full page advertisement in Southampton's Daily Echo to thank Saints fans.

The ad, on page 75, read: '14 unforgettable years, the memories will last a lifetime. Thank you Saints fans for your endless support, a place in my heart forever.'

The 26-year-old was officially unveiled at Liverpool's Melwood training HQ on Tuesday and leaves the Saints after joining at the age of 12.
