Liverpool have confirmed that Kevin Keen has joined the club as first-team coach on a three-year contract.
Keen will join up with his new colleagues for the first time on Monday when Liverpool's squad report back to Melwood for the start of pre-season training.
The 44-year-old made over 600 appearances in spells with West Ham, Wolves, Stoke City, Macclesfield and Wycombe.
He was previously first-team coach at West Ham and has acted as caretaker manager at Upton Park on no less than three separate occasions.
Manager Kenny Dalglish is delighted Keen is joining to work alongside ex-Hammers colleague Steve Clarke.
"I'm delighted that Kevin is joining us to work alongside Steve Clarke coaching the first-team squad," he told the club's official website.
"He has previously worked with Steve at West Ham and has a good reputation and a good manner about him.
"He is highly respected in the game and will be a great addition to our technical staff."
