Official: Anderlecht complete signing of Milan Jovanovic from Liverpool

The 30-year-old Serbia international returns to Belgium following a disappointing first season at Anfield, as the transformation of Kenny Dalglish's side continues
Anderlecht have completed the signing of Milan Jovanovic from Liverpool for an undisclosed fee after the forward failed to make an impact in the Premier League.

The Serbian international joined the club following the 2010 World Cup, while previous boss Roy Hodgson was at the helm.

The 30-year-old found first team opportunities hard to come by, though, and was regularly on the fringes of matchday squads.

Jovanovic's departure follows the arrival of a host of midfielders at Liverpool this summer, with Kenny Dalglish bolstering his squad for the new Premier League season.

Stewart Downing, Charlie Adam and Jordan Henderson have arrived from Aston Villa, Blackpool and Sunderland respectively as the Anfield club's spending has passed far beyond €45 million during this transfer window.

Paul Konchesky has also departed Liverpool this summer for Leicester City, while the futures of a string of other Reds players remain in doubt.

Jovanovic returns to Belgium having previously played for Standard Liege, and he has signed a three-year contract with Anderlecht.
