DONE DEAL: Liverpool sell Shaqiri to Lyon

Liverpool attacker Xherdan Shaqiri has completed a £9.5m move to Olympique Lyon.

The Switzerland international, 29, who joined Liverpool from Stoke in 2018, scored eight goals in 63 appearances in all competitions under Jurgen Klopp.

Lyon had initially offered £4m which was dismissed as 'ridiculous' by Liverpool, before coming back with a revised offer.

Shaqiri has agreed a four-year contract with the French side.

Liverpool said on their official website: "The Switzerland international finalised a switch that will see him embark on a new chapter in his career with the Ligue 1 club.

"He departs the Reds with winner's medals in the Premier League, Champions League, FIFA Club World Cup and UEFA Super Cup."
