Liverpool have confirmed the loan signing of Valencia full-back Aly Cissokho.

The 25-year-old has spent two seasons with Valencia after heading to Spain from Lyon.

Cissokho will provide competition for Jose Enrique and has become manager Brendan Rodgers' fifth signing of the summer following the arrivals of Iago Aspas, Luis Alberto, Simon Mignolet and Kolo Toure.

The 25-year-old said he was delighted to have joined Liverpool, and is looking forward to his first taste of Premier League action.

"I feel extremely proud to be here and I'm proud of all the hard work I've put in so far throughout my career," he told the club's official website.

"I've always dreamt of one day signing for a really legendary club. I've been lucky enough to play for a few top sides and so to now get the chance to play for a club like Liverpool, it's just fantastic.

"I've always said, along with a lot of other French players, that I really love the English league, and although I've been fortunate enough to have played at some big clubs, in the back of my mind, I've always wanted to play in England.

"It's really pleasing when a club like Liverpool shows interest in you, and when that interest becomes more serious, you really can't wait for the move to go through. Now that the transfer has been completed, I'm really happy.

"I hope to feature in as many games as possible. I know it's going to be quite tough and I need to get to work as soon as possible as pre-season is over and we are into the league programme."

The confirmation of Cissokho's arrival comes at the end of a bad day for Liverpool who look set to miss out on Brazilian international Willian.

Spurs appear to be on the verge of landing the 25-year-old from Anzhi Makhachkala.
