Liverpool sign goalkeeper

11:58 am on 16 July 2011

The Liverpool football club has signed AS Roma goalkeeper Alexander Doni for an undisclosed fee as manager Kenny Dalglish continued his close-season rebuilding for next year's Premier League.

Doni, who has 10 caps for Brazil, has been brought in as back-up to Liverpool's current number one Pepe Reina.

Doni is Liverpool's third summer signing following the arrival of England midfielder Jordan Henderson from Sunderland and Scotland playmaker Charlie Adam from Blackpool.

England winger Stewart Downing is also expected to join the Anfield club after Liverpool agreed a fee with Aston Villa on Thursday.
