(REUTERS) - Liverpool confirmed on Tuesday the arrival of England midfielder Adam Lallana from fellow Premier League side Southampton on a long-term deal.

No transfer fee was announced but British media estimate Liverpool paid around 25 million pounds (S$53.3 million) for the 26-year-old, a member of the side who failed to progress to the second round of the World Cup in Brazil.

"It's a huge step. Liverpool have got so much history and after the season they had last season, I can't wait to get started and carry on and build on that," he said on the club website (www.liverpoolfc.com).

Lallana, Southampton's captain, will rejoin former club and country team-mate Rickie Lambert, who also moved to Liverpool this month.
