Liverpool Football Club has today officially announced the signing of Ukrainian international striker Andriy Voronin.
The 27-year-old, who was out of contract at Bundesliga side Bayer Leverkusen, will be unveiled to the media after 1pm today.

Rafa Benitez said: “He is a player with pace and with good movement. He plays between the lines, between defenders. He is a good worker also, and he scores goals.

“He’s not the kind of player you can talk about strengths because he has many things he can give to us.”

Voronin is a versatile forward who has played in the hole, on the wing and as an out-and-out striker.

He began his professional career aged 15 after Borussia Moenchengladbach spotted him playing for Ukraine Under-16s.

Next up for the player nicknamed The Raven was a move to FSV Mainz, where he scored 20 league goals during the 2002/03 season.

Voronin signed for FC Cologne in 2003 but was snapped up by Leverkusen a year later.

In 2004-05 he featured in the German side’s 6-2 aggregate defeat to Liverpool in the Champions League.

The striker leaves the BayArena with a record of 21 goals in 71 league games.

Voronin made his international debut in a friendly against Romania in March 2002. He’s so far earned 44 caps, including four in the 2006 World Cup, and scored five goals for his country.
