Liverpool chief Damien Comolli insists that Jordan Henderson is just the start of the club's summer spending.
The England midfielder arrived from Sunderland this week in a £20million deal and is the third major signing under Kenny Dalglish's new tenure after the big-money arrivals of Andy Carroll and Luis Suarez in January.
Now the Reds' director of football has said there is more to come.
"We wanted to make a signing early. The earlier the better because we can then re-adjust our strategy or decide we aren't going to do any more - which won't be the case now!" Comolli insisted.
"I'm very pleased, because Jordan was one of the big targets we had. When you get your first target it's always a good sign because you think the others will come through as well."
British is best
And Comolli also revealed that British experience is preferable to them over foreign buys.
"If a player is English, or British or has played in the Premier League, we'll
look at that over someone abroad," confirmed Comolli.
"We go for a player because he ticks all the boxes. It's what we need at this
time in this window, and we have seen that with Henderson."
