Pennant Signs Four-Year Deal With Liverpool

Last updated : 26 July 2006 By Brian Cartlidge

The 23-year-old former Arsenal winger has moved to Anfield for an initial £6.7million fee which could rise to 38million with add-ons.

Pennant, who signed a permanent deal with Blues last summer having spent five months on loan at St Andrew's, has joined the Reds on a four year contract.

"I had a great time in my 18 months at Birmingham City, and everybody, including the fans were absolutely fantastic to me," he said.

"Hopefully I will have the opportunity to play against them in the Premiership sooner rather than later, because that is where they deserve to be.

"When I had my problems, Steve Bruce and the club showed faith in me.

"I'll always be grateful to Steve and the rest of the coaching staff because they have provided me with the opportunity to take on a new challenge in my career."
