Liverpool signing Daniel Sturridge has revealed that he is looking forward to a long a successful spell at the club.

The 23-year-old arrives at Anfield for an estimated £12m from Premier League rivals Chelsea, where he has been used sparingly this season.

He put pen to paper yesterday (Wednesday) and believes that he will enjoy a long and successful period at the club:

“I am humbled and happy to be here,” he told the club’s official website.

“Brendan Rodgers said he sees me here for a long time – and I also see myself here for a long time. I’ve not signed here to play for a couple of years and then move on.

“I’ve signed to be here for as long as possible. It’s a humongous club – for me, one of the biggest in the world – and to have the fans and world-class players we have here is amazing.”

Sturridge spent three-and-a-half years with Chelsea, making over 50 first-team appearances.

Initially he struggled to break into the first-tem at Stamford Bridge, but, following a successful loan spell with Bolton, he became a key fixture under Andre Villas-Boas.

The Portuguese coach’s dismissal saw Sturridge’s first-team opportunities limited, although injury has had a bearing on his chances this term.
