Jaap Stam said: ““Tiago is the type of defender a lot of people like – his technical skill, passing ability, pace, quality and physique. We always want players with those attributes within our squad.
“In this league, with all the games we need to play, you never know what’s going to happen with injuries and suspensions – so it’s also important we have options and the chance to rotate. ”
Tiago Ilori becomes Jaap Stam ‘s first signing in the January transfer window.
Ilori,23, only three times for Liverpool – all in cup games after being signed by ex Royals boss Brendan Rodgers for £3.5million in 2013 from Sporting Lisbon.
He then had loan spells at Granada and Bordeaux, before spending six months at Aston Villa last season but he did not feature for the club.
