Kevin Keen has been appointed first team coach at Liverpool.
KUMB.com exclusively revealed yesterday how Keen, along with reserve team boss Steve Lomas, had left West Ham - with view to securing a move to Liverpool.
That move has now been completed with Liverpool releasing a statement tonight confirming that Keen - who had been working at West Ham in a coaching capacity since 2002 - will be teaming up with another former Hammers employee, Steve Clarke, on Merseyside.
"Keen has signed a three year deal and will join up with his new colleagues on Monday when the Liverpool squad report back to Melwood for the start of pre-season training," reported liverpoolfc.tv tonight.
Meanwhile current reds boss Kenny Dalglish welcomed the appointment, stating: "I'm delighted that Kevin is joining us to work alongside Steve Clarke coaching the first team squad.
"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."
KUMB.com wish Kevin the very best of luck in his new post.
