Joe Allen believes he is already on the “same wavelength” as his Liverpool team-mates after joining from Swansea City.

The 21-year-old, who joined in a £15m deal from Swansea City, has immediately settled into Liverpool’s midfield, boasting a pass completion rate of 94 per cent this season.

“It’s very flattering,” Allen told Liverpool’s website. “I’ve been welcomed here with open arms and settled really well into the dressing room and the city. Obviously this is a good way to start my career here.

“The thing I’m most pleased about is the way that I’ve gelled with my teammates.

“We seemed to be on the same wavelength straight away, which is great because as a new player coming into the team you worry that might take time and it might take time for me to find my feet.

“Luckily, things have gone well for me personally and I’m really enjoying being part of this football team.”

Earlier this week, Brendan Rodgers heaped praise on Allen after the midfielder’s impressive start to his career at the Merseyside outfit.

“I think it’s remarkable how quickly he has settled,” Rodgers said.

“Is it a surprise to me? No, because I knew what we were paying and I know the boy’s qualities. I think the biggest testament that you can give him is that he has come into here and he looks like he has been a Liverpool player for the last 10 years.

“That’s great credit to him, and I think you see the supporters are recognising that he looks like a player who is a Liverpool player, because of how he passes the ball, his courage to get on the ball, but also his willingness to put his body on the line for the team and for the club.

“He has been outstanding and he will only get better.”
