Spanish side Espanyol have swooped to sign Steve Finnan from Liverpool.

The Republic of Ireland full-back has not featured for The Reds this season after falling out-of-favour with manager Rafa Benitez.

The 32-year-old had been linked with a host of Premier League clubs but he has now sealed a move to La Liga.

The Barcelona-based club have handed Finnan a two-year deal.

The move brings to an end a five-year stay for Finnan at Anfield, where he made just short of 150 appearances.
