Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool have officially confirmed the signing of an African star, who will join the club next season.

Super-Agent In Barca To Finalise Di Maria Move?

The Reds have announced that Red Bull Leipzig midfielder Naby Keita will move to Merseyside next season, where he will begin his five-year contract from July 2018.

The Guinea international impressed in Germany in the 2016/17 campaign, contributing to 16 goals in 32 appearances, and was also named in the Bundesliga's Team of the Year.

Liverpool confirmed the signing on their website, with Keita insisting that while he is delighted with the agreement, he will continue to give his all for his current club.  

"I am delighted that an agreement has been reached which will allow me to join Liverpool Football Club next summer, when I will become part of a project that excites me greatly," he said, via the Reds' official website.

"My commitment to RBL remains absolute for the remainder of my time at the club. I have given my all every time I have worn the shirt – that will be the case until the final whistle, in my final appearance.

"Having my future resolved means I can now focus on helping RBL achieve great things this season. Until I join my new club, next summer, I will remain an interested supporter from a distance."
