Reds boss Brendan Rodgers was keen to welcome his new goalkeeper signing, who will be the costliest goalkeeper in the club’s history. He said on the club’s official website, “I am delighted that we have been able to sign one of the top goalkeepers in the Barclays Premier League.

“Simon will join a club that will give him an opportunity to demonstrate and improve his huge talent.”
