Liverpool sign French defender Chris Mavinga
Liverpool's summer spending has continued with the signing of French left-back Chris Mavinga from Paris St Germain. The 18-year-old is equally comfortable at full-back or centre-back where he has played for the French Under-18 team.
Mavinga becomes the second defender to sign for the Reds this summer following the arrival of Glen Johnson earlier this month and should provide cover for the injured Brazilian left-back Fabio Aurelio.
The Moroccan striker, El Zhar, has also signed a new deal which will keep him at
Anfield until 2012. The 22-year-old joined Liverpool back in 2006 and has made just 19 appearances for the Premier League club scoring just one goal.
