Liverpool have completed the £35m signing of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain from Arsenal..
The 24-year-old passed a medical on Wednesday after the Gunners accepted Liverpool's bid for a player who made it clear he would not extend his Emirates contract beyond next summer.
Oxlade-Chamberlain has since agreed personal terms on a long-term deal, and the transfer was confirmed at 12pm on Deadline Day.
Speaking from England's St George's Park base, Oxlade-Chamberlain said: "I'm delighted to have signed for Liverpool and a big thank you to everyone here at the FA that has made this possible, using the facilities. It has been a massive help.
"I'm not going to say too much. I'm here with England and we've got two big games coming up, so I want to focus on them. But I can't wait to get to Melwood."
Oxlade-Chamberlain was used at wing-back in his final few months at Arsenal, and his desire to establish himself in central midfield was a motivating factor in his departure.
Welcome, @Alex_OxChambo! 🔴

Jurgen Klopp told the Liverpool website: "I hear a lot of talk about positions but let's talk about the player; he is someone with really good abilities who always gives everything for his team. A player that is positive and willing to take risks to try and make positive things happen.
"He may still be young but he has a lot of experience in the Premier League, Champions League and for his country. Already he is a very, very good player and I think he has the mentality and desire to get even better - and that excites me.
"I am really, really happy we have got Alex signed. Since the last game I have been waiting and hoping we could make this transfer - and when I got the news he was ours it was fantastic."
