Liverpool have completed the £7m signing of Celta Vigo striker Iago Aspas.

The 25-year-old becomes the second Spaniard to join the Reds this week following their £6.8m capture of Luis Alberto from Sevilla.

"Liverpool Football Club are delighted to confirm the signing of striker Iago Aspas, subject to international clearance," read a statement on the Reds' official website.

"The deal with Celta Vigo is now complete and the 25-year-old has penned a long-term contract after passing a medical at Melwood."

Aspas scored 12 goals in 35 league games to help Celta avoid relegation from La Liga last season.
