Lucas Leiva says that new signing Hoe Allen is already showing his Liverpool teammates his talent.

Liverpool midfielder Lucas Leiva has revealed that Joe Allen is already impressing his teammates in training.

The Team GB midfielder completed a £15m move to Anfield from Swansea City last week after starring at the Olympic Games.

The 22-year-old has begun training with his new club, and Lucas admits that he has been impressed by Allen.

"He had a training session with us and we can see what a quality player he is so hopefully he can be a key player for us during the season," Lucas told the club's official website.

"It's one more player to fight for a place and it's really good for the club. We need more than 11 players to be successful.

"He had a good season last year and he had a great tournament in the Olympics as well. He has confidence and he has experience so hopefully he will do well for us."

Allen has eight caps for Wales.
