Reds sign three on deadline day

Liverpool have now signed Javier Mascherano on loan from West Ham. The club have yet to make the announcement officially, but sources at the club have said it's a done deal.

The Argentinean's signing follows on from official announcements earlier today that Deportivo La Coruna's defender Alvaro Arbeloa and Malaga's midfielder Francisco Manuel Duran had become Liverpool players. Arbeloa is believed to have cost the Reds £2.5m, and Duran cost a nominal fee as payable under rules for compensation for young players.
