Liverpool have confirmed the signing of Adam Lallana in a £25m deal from Southampton.

The 26-year-old has penned a long-term deal with the Reds after completing a medical at the club’s Melwood training ground.

And here is a selection of our favourite tweets from the ex-pros to Lallana’s move to the 18-time English champions.

Former Tottenham Hotspur striker Gary Lineker (@GaryLineker) is a huge fan of Liverpool’s new signing: “Lallana is an excellent signing for Liverpool. A delightfully gifted, beautifully balanced footballer… Must say, I do feel for Southampton’s fans. A lovely team is disintegrating before their eyes. All the best, Ronald.”

Ex-Barnsley midfielder Jan Aage Fjortoft (@JanAageFjortoft) is a fan of Liverpool’s policy of buying English players, but warns Southampton over the perils of buying from Eredivisie: “Adam Lallana from Saints to Liverpool. Good summer-signing for the #lfc fans. I like the “English-way” they’re going. Worrying-times for Southampton… Sometimes Dutch-managers rate Dutch talents too highly. Koeman be aware….”

Former Northern Ireland manager and Liverpool youth player Jim Magilton (@magilton7) wants some defensive signings now: “Lallana another great signing from Saints- need one or two defenders now!”

Liverpool legend Terry McDermott (@TerryMac777) is happy with the capture: “Adam Lallana is a quality signing #lfc”
