Brazilian defender Fabio Aurelio has been re-signed by Liverpool, just two months after being told he had no future at the club.
The 30-year-old left in May, but manager Roy Hodgson offered him the chance to train with the Reds in a bid to earn a return and he has now been offered a two-year contract.
"I asked the club to find out whether Fabio had found a new club. When we ascertained that he hadn't, we invited him back so we could properly assess the player," Hodgson said.
"We were very impressed and I am delighted we were able to re-sign Fabio."
Aurelio, who played 71 times in four seasons at Anfield and scored three goals, has been included in the travelling party for Sunday's friendly against Borussia Monchengladbach.
