Joel Matip has today officially been registered as a Liverpool player, finalising his transfer to the club.

The centre-back's long-term contract with the Reds has begun following the conclusion of his previous deal with Bundesliga side FC Schalke.

Matip will take part in the start of pre-season training with his new teammates at Melwood on Saturday, when Jürgen Klopp's side begin preparations for the 2016-17 campaign.
