The 29-year-old England international will join Liverpool upon expiry of his contract on July 1. He becomes the first major signing of the club in the summer transfer window.
Milner is a versatile player who can play in multiple positions and known for his tremendous work rate. Getting him on a free transfer seems a cracking piece of business from Liverpool.
The England international graduated from the famous Leeds United academy and spent quality years at Newcastle United, Aston Villa and Manchester City.
He was one of the most consistent performers in the star studded City squad and managed over 140 league appearances in his five years stay at the club. Let us take a look at some of the reactions from the Liverpool fans regarding this deal expressed on Twitter:

Very good start to the transfer window, James Milner signs for Liverpool on a free transfer. Great business.

Milner is perfect signing for #LFC following Steven Gerrard’s departure. Far from like-for-like but has experience sorely lacking at Anfield
