Liverpool seal Mascherano deal

The Premier League have accepted Liverpool's application to register Argentina midfielder Javier Mascherano.

Liverpool agreed to sign the 22-year-old on loan from West Ham on transfer deadline day, but the Premier League refused to sanction the move until they had had the chance to investigate his registration details.

The top-flight's governing body is still to decide whether there will be any action against the Hammers for their role in signing Mascherano and compatriot Carlos Tevez.

A Premier League statement released on Tuesday said: 'The Premier League has today confirmed that the application by Liverpool FC to register Javier Mascherano as a player has been accepted.

'The Premier League is satisfied that the contractual arrangements proposed by Liverpool FC are consistent with its rules; particularly that the relationship between club and player is not subject to third-party influence.

'The Premier League is grateful for Liverpool FC's cooperation and openness at the start and throughout the process.

'Liverpool FC also appreciated the Premier League Board were not prepared to sanction this transfer until further information on any third-party involvement in player registrations had been received from all Premier League clubs.'

Mascherano and Tevez signed for West Ham from Brazilian club Corinthians on the final day of last summer's transfer window, and their arrival was expected to usher in a takeover bid by a consortium headed by Kia Joorabchian - whose Media Sports Investment part own the players' registration.

That takeover never took place, with an Icelandic bid headed by Eggert Magnusson accepted instead, and Mascherano found himself surplus to requirements under new manager Alan Curbishley.

Despite just three Barclays Premiership starts for the Hammers, Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez was happy to gamble on a player who shone for his country in last summer's World Cup.
