Liverpool signing Ben Davies: I think I've outgrown Championship football

Liverpool signing Ben Davies says he felt he had outgrown the Championship this season.

The former Preston defender made a surprise deadline day move to Anfield on Monday.

He told the club's website: "I think in the Championship, especially this season, I've felt more and more comfortable playing there and I can get through games, not with ease but fairly comfortably and I think now, regardless of where I was going to go, I was going to look to move on to get a new challenge.

"For it to be here, with the league champions, is obviously a bit surreal at the minute, but it's something that I'm really going to get my teeth into and look forward to."

Of the challnege of breaking into the first team, Davies added: "I think a football career is so short and you need to try to be on that pitch as much as you can. So when this door is open, I look to come in and try to get in the first team, play some games and help the team do well."
