England defender Glen Johnson joins Liverpool

ENGLAND defender Glen Johnson has agreed to join Liverpool from Portsmouth.

The two clubs reached an agreement over the 24-year-old right back's move yesterday after a switch fell through last season.

Liverpool has reportedly paid 17.5 million pounds (US$28.6 million) to Portsmouth, which still owed seven million pounds from the deal that saw Peter Crouch leave Anfield in the last offseason.

Johnson, who left Chelsea in 2006, has become an England regular under Fabio Capello.

The transfer was clinched on Christian Purslow's first day as Liverpool's managing director, a position he is occupying while the search for a new chief executive continues.

CEO Rick Parry will leave this week following 11 years at Anfield after becoming a casualty of the power struggle between the club's American owners, Tom Hicks and George Gillett Jr.
