Liverpool sign Maxi Rodriguez

Liverpool have signed Argentine winger Maxi Rodriguez on a free transfer.

Rodriguez passed a medical and agreed personal terms and a contract of a 3-and-a-half-year deal. Maxi was out of favour at Atletico Madrid and Benitez was quick to pounce at the situation.

Rodriguez is Liverpool's 1st signing this transfer window following the sales of Andrey Voronin to Dynamo Moscow (1.5m) and Andrea Dossena to Napoli (4.5m).

Rodriguez although a right winger - can also play on the left as well as a second striker. Rodriguez is a well established Argentine international. His move to Liverpool would help him boost his World Cup chances this summer.

With injuries to key players Gerrard, Torres and Benayoun during the Reading match - Maxi may well be included in the squad against Stoke on Saturday.
