ZARAGOZA, Spain (AP) Newly promoted Spanish club Zaragoza signed midfielder Jermaine Pennant from Liverpool on Friday.
The 26-year-old Pennant agreed to a three-year deal after his contract with the Reds ran out.
"I wanted to come to Spain and I rejected offers from other teams in Europe to sign for Real Zaragoza," Pennant said on the club's Web site. "I can't wait for the season to start."
Liverpool had paid Birmingham City £6.7 million ($10.9 million) for the former Arsenal and Watford player in 2006.
Pennant, who spent last season on loan at Portmouth, made 163 Premier League appearances.
