Xherdan Shaqiri will be involved in Liverpool’s tour of the United States later this month, Jürgen Klopp has confirmed.

The Switzerland international, who completed a much anticipated transfer from Stoke City after his £13m release clause was triggered on Friday night on a long-term deal, will be included in the Reds’ squad for the International Champions Cup tournament, which begins next weekend.

Klopp, which has high hopes for Xherdan Shaqiri said, “The strange thing is in the summer break is that I always have to tell the players they need to have more holidays because they constantly want to be in immediately, but they cannot do it.

Xherdan Shaqiri is Klopp's third Summer Signing.

“It’s not allowed they have two weeks off and then they start the English Premier League season, which is really long and demanding.

“Xherdan was in yesterday, which was nice. He is a nice fella. He will be back in the USA. Hopefully he will now take a holiday there because it will be pretty easy to join us there.

“He will not come with us [from Liverpool] but he can be involved, which will be nice.

“Then he will have enough time and the training camp in France to prepare.”

Liverpool face ICC fixtures against Borussia Dortmund in Charlotte, Manchester City in East Rutherford, and Manchester United in Ann Arbor.
