Liverpool have been extremely busy on deadline day, with the club wrapping up deals for Tiago Ilori, Mamadou Sakho and Victor Moses.
Reds boss Brendan Rodgers spoke positively in recent days about bringing in new faces, and Ilori was seen at Anfield on Sunday as Liverpool beat Manchester United 1-0 in the Premier League.

Liverpool have not revealed the length of deal Ilori has signed, but the player did speak to the club’s official website.
It feels great being a Liverpool player—coming to the Premier League has always been a dream for me.
I'm going to try and achieve everything I can. I want to play as much as possible and we'll see what the future holds.
I will give my all and try my best to help the team.
Ilori, whose preferred position is centre-back, spent seven years on the books of Portuguese side Sporting, having joined the club in 2006, and he has represented Portugal at Under-18, Under-19 and Under-20 level.
Rodgers has already brought in Kolo Toure, Iago Aspas, Luis Alberto, Simon Mignolet and Aly Cissokho this summer.
Hot on the heel of the arrival of Ilori, the Reds wrapped up a deal for Sakho—with the defender making the move on a long-term deal.

"I'm delighted to be here," Sakho told the club's official website. "I'd like to thank everyone for the welcome.
"I came here because the project that is in place at Liverpool interests me. I'm really looking forward to playing my first game."
And the busy day continued with the Reds announcing the capture of Moses on a season-long loan.
