Johnson signs for Liverpool

Portsmouth's Glen Johnson has snubbed Chelsea's fat salary to sign for Liverpool.

Both Chelsea and Liverpool were trying to sign the English defender from Fratton Park based Portsmouth.

Portsmouth had agreed to the £17.5million fee for him and allowed the player to negotiate with the clubs.

However, he chose to sign for the Merseysiders and not go in for a second spell with Chelsea.

A statement by the club read :

Liverpool FC confirmed this evening that they had reached an agreement with Portsmouth Football Club and with Glen Johnson for the transfer of the player to Anfield.

Are Liverpool fans happy to see this deal through?
