Football: Liverpool seal deal for Estonia defender Klavan

LONDON, (Pakistan Point News - 20th july, 2016) - Liverpool have finalised the signing of Estonia defender Ragnar Klavan from Augsburg, the Premier League club confirmed on Wednesday. Klavan agreed a "long-term contract" after passing a medical at Liverpool's Melwood training ground and will cost the Reds a reported #4.2 million ($5.5 million, 5 million Euros). The 30-year-old has won over 100 caps for Estonia and is well known to Liverpool's German manager Jurgen Klopp, a former Borussia Dortmund coach, after spending four seasons playing in the Bundesliga. Klavan, who featured in both legs of Augsburg's Europa League last-32 tie against Liverpool in February, will provide cover at centre-back as Mamadou Sakho and Joe Gomez are both currently injured and Tiago Ilori is heading to the Olympics with Portugal.
