Joe Allen signed in as a Liverpool player on Friday, so we thought we'd check out his Opta stats from the 2011-12 Barclays Premier League - and they make impressive reading.
The most striking statistic is that the 22-year-old recorded a superb 91.2 per cent accuracy rate with his 2,177 passes.
To put that in context, this is slightly better than Maxi Rodriquez, who was Liverpool's top passer last season with an accuracy of 90.6 per cent from 394 passes.
Allen's stats can be broken down further to show that passes completed in an opponent's half found their man on 85.5 per cent of occasions.
Away from passing, Allen played a hefty 2,891 minutes of league football for Swansea in their first season in the Premier League - a figure topped by just two outfield players at Liverpool last season (Martin Skrtel 2,994 and Jose Enrique 2,992).
The Welshmen made 256 recoveries, which would have placed him second in the squad had he played for Liverpool, with Enrique tallying 270.
Elsewhere, Allen amassed 74 interceptions - more than any Liverpool player. He also won 54.5 per cent of his duels, beating an opponent in a challenge 198 times.
He won 82 tackles, or 74.5 per cent of those he attempted.
In the attacking third, the midfielder claimed two league assists and created 44 other goalscoring chances.
Finally, Allen scored four goals, had a shot accuracy of 48.1 per cent and a shot conversion rate of 14.8 per cent.
