Liverpool have confirmed they have completed the signing of Xherdan Shaqiri from Stoke City.

Talks between Stoke and Liverpool over a £13million deal advanced in recent days and the 26-year-old winger has been unveiled as the clubs third signing of the summer transfer window.

Naby Keita and Fabinho arrived on Merseyside earlier this summer to boost Jurgen Klopps midfield options and Shaqiri provides support for Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane in attack.

Shaqiri has been on holiday following Switzerlands elimination from the World Cup but is set to join up with his new team-mates for pre-season training next week.

The former Bayern Munich man passed a medical with Liverpool on Friday and has been handed the No.23 shirt.
