Holland Under-21 star Ryan Babel will sign a five-year contract with Liverpool after being impressed by manager Rafael Benitez.

The Ajax forward, who will cost £11.5million, will be the Reds´ second signing in 24 hours after West Ham midfielder Yossi Benayoun completed a £5million move on Thursday - and 20-year-old Babel believes he has a significant part to play next season.

"I listened to what they (Liverpool) had to say and I got a great feeling about the club," he told Ajax TV. "I have made a choice with my heart. The coach has big plans for me."
