Liverpool sealed the signing of Spanish full-back Alberto Moreno today, but how much do you know about him? Find out more with our 10 interesting facts on the defender.

The 22-year-old spent 10 years at Sevilla, his hometown club. He joined their youth academy at 13, and has rapidly progressed through their ranks.

Moreno's first triumph at a tournament came back in 2004, when Spain won the Danone Nations Cup - an international youth competition. He lined up along with Liverpool's Luis Alberto, who is one of his close friends.

He was named in the Team of the Tournament for last year's European U21 Championship, alongside his new teammate Fabio Borini. Moreno faced the striker in the final, where Spain ousted Italy 4-2, with the Liverpool forward getting on the scoresheet.

The left-back recorded an impressive three assists in 10 appearances during last season's Europa League, in which Sevilla were crowned champions.

In that campaign, Moreno provided the decisive ball for both goals in Sevilla's 2-0 second-leg win over Real Betis, which secured his side's progress to the quarter-finals after a penalty shootout.

The starlet is also adept in an attacking position on the left, where he played as a youngster. He turned out in midfield five times for Sevilla last season.

The Spaniard is a strong dribbler, and possesses great anticipation. He made an impressive 2.5 interceptions per game in La Liga last term.

He was among the top 10 for passes attempted and completed in the 2013-14 Europa League.

Moreno's rise has been remarkable - in nine months, he went from playing in Spain's third tier to starting for Sevilla and earning a senior cap for the 2010 World Cup champions.

He is from the Andalusia region of Spain. Apart from the great footballers the area has produced - such as Real Madrid legend Fernando Hierro - it is also the birthplace of actor Antonio Banderas and the premier painter/sculptor Pablo Picasso.
