Will update this page throughout the day as more information comes in. Stay tuned, Galaxy fans.

Steven Gerrard has officially joined the Galaxy, as first reported by the LA Times then confirmed on the Galaxy website.

Lots of interesting details. Although LA were apparently eager to sign the 34-year-old Liverpool legend, a conversation with Brendan Rogers revealed Gerrard wouldn't see much playing time in the second half of the season, driving the midfielder to seek out a new adventure.

The Liverpool website spoke with Gerrard as well.

Gerrard on Robbie Keane:

"I can't wait. He's a good friend of mine and we get on really well. I enjoyed the time I spent with him at Liverpool and I am hoping he stays there for the duration of my stay because I love playing with him and he's on the same wavelength.
