“I think this is the perfect solution for us in this moment, replacing talent and experience like for like,” Jurgen Klopp told the club’s official website.
“With Ali and Simon, I felt like we had two ‘No.1s’ and in many ways we have repeated that with Adrian. This is important.
“He is a ‘keeper who knows the Premier League, who has played in pressure situations and has the highest quality.
“They are big gloves to fill because Simon was such an outstanding professional and contributed to the group even when not in the starting XI. Everything we know about Adrian tells us he has the personal qualities to go with his clear playing talent to ensure this area of the team is not weakened.
“We’re all looking forward to working with him.”
Paul Joyce of The Times, who broke the news about the deal being close earlier today, has revealed that the Spaniard has signed a two-year contract with an option on a third.
