Hyypia to join Bayer Leverkusen at end of season

Veteran Liverpool defender Sami Hyypia will join German side Bayer Leverkusen on a two-year deal in the summer.

The Finn, who has been at Anfield for 10 years, made his debut for the Reds in August 1999. Hyypia has made 317 league appearances for Liverpool and was a key member of the side which won the FA Cup, Worthington Cup and UEFA Cup in 2001.

A report on the official Liverpool website, read: "Hyypia underwent a medical with the German outfit this morning and will link up with his new team-mates in the summer for the start of pre-season training.

"The Finnish international has earned legendary status at Anfield for the part he has played in the club's many successes over the past decade - and he will leave Merseyside with the best wishes of every Liverpool supporter."

Hyypia explained his reasons for joining the Bundesliga club on the Leverkusen website: "The discussions with Bayer were very positive. They gave me the feeling they wanted to sign me," he said.

"I look forward to the task in Leverkusen and hope that we will be successful together."

Bayer's sporting director Rudi Voller was delighted to have snared the experienced defender.

He said: "Sami will bring experience and presence to our young squad."
