Liverpool signs England defender Clyne from Southampton

LIVERPOOL, England (AP) -- England defender Nathaniel Clyne has become the fourth player to join Liverpool from Southampton in the past year after signing for a reported fee of 12.5 million pounds ($19.7 million).

Liverpool announced the transfer of Clyne on a long-term contract on Wednesday, making the attacking right back the club's sixth arrival of the offseason.

Dejan Lovren, Adam Lallana and Rickie Lambert left Southampton for Liverpool last summer for a combined cost of nearly 50 million pounds (now $79 million).

Clyne will replace Glen Johnson, who has been released by Liverpool.

The 24-year-old Clyne has established himself as England's first-choice right back this year.

Liverpool has also signed Roberto Firmino, James Milner and Danny Ings this offseason, as well as back-up goalkeeper Adam Bogdan and young defender Joe Gomez.
