Liverpool signs Brazil playmaker Philippe Coutinho from Inter Milan

Brazil playmaker Philippe Coutinho has joined Liverpool from Inter Milan.

The 20-year-old Coutinho was signed in a deal worth around €10 million ($13.5 million US) on Wednesday, a day before the January transfer window closes.

He is Liverpool's second arrival this month following the signing of England striker Daniel Sturridge from Chelsea for £12 million (about $19 million).

Coutinho says Liverpool "are the club that have been interested in me and that have showed this interest so I know they believe in me and my football."

His contract was only described as "long term" by Liverpool.
