It is little surprise that the 27-year-old was happy to hear that Roy Hodgson was planning a swoop for him.

"When I heard Liverpool wanted to sign me, I was at home with my wife in Porto," he told LFC Weekly.

"I was smiling a lot and she asked me what was going on. I told her that Liverpool wanted me. I was very happy. We discussed it briefly and we both said 'yes.'

"Liverpool is a fantastic club and one of the most important in the world. There was no chance of me saying 'no.'

"Knowing that Liverpool wanted me made me very proud - it is maybe my proudest moment so far."
