In the latest Liverpool transfer news, Mario Balotelli completed his switch from AC Milan to Anfield - and Reds fans are excited.

Mario Balotelli's arrival at Anfield was confirmed by Liverpool football club earlier today, Monday, after the Italian successfully transferred from AC Milan for an undisclosed fee believed to be £16.5 million.

The 24-year-old is delighted to have returned to the Premier League, after a previous stint at Manchester City, and claimed that English football is "generally better… it's beautiful."

He told the club's official website: "I'm happy to be back because I left England and it was a mistake. I wanted to go to Italy but I realised it was a mistake.

"Liverpool are one of the best teams here in England. The football is very good here. It's a great team with young players, and that's why I came here."

Liverpool fans were ecstatic over the eccentric superstar's arrival and even proclaimed the Daniel Sturridge - Balotelli partnership as "the best strikeforce in the league."
