Philipp Degen has officially completed his move to Liverpool today and has signed a four year contract. (As if contracts matter in this day and age). We had known for a while now that the Swiss full-back was coming to Liverpool but today it became official. Not many of us had heard of Degen before so it will be interesting to see how he fairs in the Premiership. My understanding is that he is a great attacker from the right back position. I am not too sure if he will be our first choice right back. He will have to compete against Finnan and Arbeloa for the right back position and right now I think Arbeloa should be our first choice right back. But let us see what Degen can do. Does anyone remember Vegard Heggem? A Norwegian right back who played for us about 8 years ago. Now he was quality for a short time and just seemed to fade out of it. I was reminded of him due to the similarity in names between Degen and Heggem.
