This is Liverpool's second signing of the off the season after bringing in Glen Johnson from Portsmouth. The reds beat Arsenal to sign the young French defender.

Meanwhile, El Zhar has extended his contract with Liverpool which will now run until 2012.

The player arrived in 2006 from St.Etienne and had a decent last season making 19 appearances for the Merseysiders.He follows Gerrard, Torres, Kuyt, Agger, Benayoun in agreeing their future with the club.
