Liverpool announce that midfielder Lucas Leiva has completed his transfer to Lazio.

Liverpool have announced that midfielder Lucas Leiva has completed his move to Lazio.

Lucas had spent the last 10 seasons at Anfield but after only being used on a rotational basis last season, it soon became clear that he would leave the Merseyside giants this summer.

It had initially been suggested that he would sign a deal with Brazilian side Gremio, but he has instead opted to link up with Serie A giants Lazio.

The 30-year-old told the English club's official website: "Liverpool as a club and Liverpool as a city is a unique place. I think it's different from everywhere.

"The fans are a big part of the club, probably the most important part of the club, and without them Liverpool wouldn't be the same club I would say.

"Thank you for all the support, especially in difficult times, that's when it means a lot. We all know that Liverpool fans are really special and they were always here for me."

Lucas made just 12 starts in the Premier League last season, although a further 12 appearances were made from the bench.
