Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers is confident that he has made a very important signing by completing a £20million deal for Southampton defender Dejan Lovren.

Croatia international Lovren becomes the third Saints player to head to Anfield this summer, with Rickie Lambert and Adam Lallana having already made moves to Merseyside.

And Rodgers believes that centre-back Lovren will be a key player for his side next season and further on into the future.

He told his club's official website: "This is a very important signing for us.

"He is a commanding and powerful presence and clearly has leadership skills, which is important - he fits the profile of player we are looking for.

"He is still relatively young, so his peak years are ahead of him and I believe he will improve and progress even further with us."

Meanwhile, the Reds have ended their pursuit of QPR's French striker Loic Remy due to problems with his medical.

Rodgers confirmed: "We are obviously disappointed for the player, but there is nothing more to be said really and we have to move on and look at other targets.

"There is money to spend, no question, but I won't spend it for the sake of it. It has to be the right type.

"If that means I have to wait until January then that's what I will do."
