June 23 (Reuters) -- Striker Iago Aspas became Liverpool's third close-season signing on Sunday when his long mooted deal was confirmed.

A club statement said Aspas passed a medical at the Red's Melwood training complex with the Spaniard inking a long-term contract - subject to international clearance.

The 25-year-old scored 12 goals and provided seven assists in 34 appearances for former club Celta Vigo last season.

Manager Brendan Rodgers' latest signing joins Spanish Under-21 player Luis Alberto and former Manchester City defender Kolo Toure at Anfield.
