Sturridge Joins Liverpool From Chelsea on ‘Long-Term’ Contract

Jan. 2 (Bloomberg) -- Liverpool signed Chelsea striker Daniel Sturridge to a “long-term” contract, the Premier League soccer club said on its website.

The Reds didn’t reveal the transfer fee, which the Daily Mail said is about 12 million pounds ($19.5 million).

Sturridge spent the past 3 1/2 years at Chelsea, scoring 24 goals in 96 matches. The 23-year-old becomes first signing for Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers during the January transfer period.

“Brendan Rodgers said he sees me here for a long time, and I also see myself here for a long time,” Sturridge said on Liverpool’s website. “I’ve not signed here to play for a couple of years and then move on.”

Sturridge began his professional career at Manchester City before moving to Chelsea in 2009. He made his debut with the England national team in 2011, and also scored twice for Britain at last year’s London Olympics.
