Brighton & Hove Albion have completed the signing of midfielder Adam Lallana from Liverpool on a free transfer.

The club and the player has agreed a three-year contract to move to the Amex Stadium to play under the management of Graham Potter ahead of the 2020/21 season after the completion of his medical on Monday.

The deal with Brighton also sees the 32-year-old return to the south coast after his departure in from Southampton to Anfield in 2014.

“There is no doubting Adam’s quality, and if you look at his footballing CV his ability is clear for everyone to see,” said Brighton head coach Graham Potter. “He has played at the very highest level, for both club and country, and achieved great things. He has a wealth of experience alongside his technical quality.

“The honours he won during his time at Liverpool, and the high regard in which he is held at Anfield, only further underline his ability and character.

“Adam is a really exciting signing for us, someone I am sure the supporters will be really looking forward to seeing play as and when things are able to begin to return to normal.

“To have both his experience and quality out on the pitch will be a great addition for us, and I know he will be an excellent role model for our younger players in the squad. I am really looking forward to working with him when we return for pre-season training in a few weeks.”

The move to Brighton will open another chapter in the career of the former England international after six years with Jurgen Klopp’s team.

He will be looking to add a bit of style to the Seagulls side who desire to make an improvement following their 15th place finish in the Premier League in the 2019/20 season.

Lallana made a total of 178 appearances for the Reds winning the top-flight, Champions League, Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup titles.
