Meireles admits that it was a difficult decision to leave Portugal for England, but he is confident that his family will have no problem adjusting to their new surroundings.
"When I knew the coach wanted me, I could only say yes because Liverpool are a big club and I am excited to play here," said Meireles.
"It was difficult to leave Porto because they are my team.
"Like Gerrard and Carragher, I had only played in my city, for Boavista and FC Porto. But now it is a new adventure for me and I am happy and excited.
"I like the city. I've found a house for myself, my wife and my daughter and the city centre is beautiful.
"It reminds me of my town, Porto. People like music here, which I also enjoy and I like the Beatles. I think I am going to be happy in this city.
"My message (to the fans) is I will work a lot to win titles at this club. All the supporters want to win trophies and I want to help this team - and this team can help me."
