Reds snap up Spaniards

Liverpool have raided Spain once more to complete deals for teenage defenders Godwin Antwi and Miquel Roque.
The duo have tied up moves to Anfield and will join the growing Spanish contingent on Merseyside.
Antwi has linked up with The Reds from Real Zaragoza, while Roque arrives from Lleida.
Ghana-born Antwi can play at centre half or in midfield, while Roque's preferred position is also at the heart of the defence.
Roque's move to Liverpool has been in the pipeline for several months after he trained with Rafa Benitez's squad towards the end of last season.
The 17-year-old claimed at the end of May that he had agreed a switch to England and that has now been confirmed by the European champions.
Both players are due to make their first appearances in a Liverpool shirt on Tuesday evening in the reserve game against Everton.
Benitez has now recruited eight players over the summer, with Antwi and Roque joining Boudewijn Zenden, Jose Reina, Peter Crouch, Mohamed Sissoko, Jack Hobbs and Antonio Barragan as fresh faces.
