How Twitter reacted to Liverpool's first signing of the summer

Liverpool have agreed a deal to sign 29-year-old midfielder James Milner from Manchester City on a free transfer, as per BBC Sport. The England international is expected to join the Anfield outfit – subject to a medical – when his contract expires at the Etihad on the 1st July.

Milner joins the club after a disappointing domestic season under Manuel Pellegrini. On an individual level the former Aston Villa man emerged as one of his side’s top performers- he played 24 times, with seven assists. Nonetheless, his efforts were not enough to prevent a trophy-less season for the blue side of Manchester.

At Liverpool, given a run of games, Milner will be a capable man in the centre of the park, providing the added energy and experience, to make up for the impending departure of captain Steven Gerrard. Considering Milner has won two Premier League titles, an FA Cup and the League Cup during his five years at City, he is certainly well qualified for the role.
