DONE DEAL: Liverpool announce signing of Olympiacos left-back Tsimikas

Liverpool have announced the signing of Kostas Tsimikas from Olympiacos for £11.75m.

The 24-year-old has signed a five-year contract and will provide cover for first-choice Andy Robertson.

“I'm very happy, I'm very proud to be here. For me, [it's] the biggest club in the world. It's an honour to be here and I will give my best," Tsimikas told the club's website.

“The league here, I like a lot. I watch it on the TV and it was always one dream I had from when I was a kid to come to play in this league and to come through.

“With a lot of work and focus on what I do and what the coach wants, and every day working hard in training, I can be on the highest level.

“[I want] to achieve [our] goals. To win the league again and also to win the Champions League."

The news comes after Norwich rejected Liverpool's offer for £10m for Jamal Lewis.

The Reds are intent on spending frugally this summer due to the financial impact of COVID-19.
