Better late than never.

Serbian forward Milan Jovanovic has finally completed his protracted move to Liverpool after signing a three-year contract with the club.

The 29-year-old agreed a deal to move to Anfield whilst the now-departed (you know what I mean) Rafa Benitez was still at the helm, and there were suggestions that the Spaniard – who was sworn in as the new Inter Milan coach in June – may attempt to high-jack the agreement.

However, Jovanovic’s arrival at Liverpool has now been confirmed by the club’s official site.

So said the man himself;

“It is an honour for me to sign for one of the biggest clubs in football.

I cannot wait to start working with the manager and I’m looking forward to joining up with my new team-mates on our Swiss training camp.”

From what I’ve seen of Jovanovic in the Champions League and at the World Cup, it looks like Liverpool will be getting themselves a bit of a bargain here (especially considering the fee).

The former Standard Liege striker (who was voted Belgian Footballer of the Year in 2008) is a grafter with an eye for a goal, and may prove to be the foil that Fernando Torres may so desperately need – considering his current injury problems.

    you can see why rafa wanted him, a utility forward who is good out wide but can genuinely play as a striker if torres is injured. there aren’t many players like that of real quality, but i think this guy is. having said uncle woy mightn’t play with just one striker so i guess he’ll usually be on left wing.

    now just sell riera.
