Official: Sebastian Coates Signs, Christian Poulsen Departs

New, comments

Sebastian Coates signs with Liverpool:

We gave you the full overview of Liverpool's imposing new defender on Friday, but issues with securing the work permit and that Nacional representatives flew to England to complete the deal delayed his official signing. An hour ago, Uruguayan sources with contacts in the Coates camp announced he had signed and was having his picture taken with a Liverpool shirt, and thirty minutes later Luis Suarez beat the official site to the punch by announcing on Twitter and Facebook that his friend Coates had indeed signed before quickly realising it hadn't been officially announced yet and taking it down. Nonetheless, the wait is now over: Coates has signed for Liverpool.

Transfer agreed for Christian Poulsen:

As discussed in today's edition of Rumour Mongering amongst talk of Raul Meireles to Chelsea and Neymar to Liverpool, Christian Poulsen's most likely destination had become France after surprise interest from Evian Thonon Gaillard FC. Now, the club has officially announced that a transfer has been agreed with the newly promoted side, with Poulsen expected to take a heavy wage cut in order to ensure first team football after being dropped from the Danish national team by Morten Olsen.

While we wait for more transfer news...
