Cape Town - England midfielder James Milner is happy to get to work as he begins life at Liverpool, following his free transfer from Manchester City.

Milner officially joined Liverpool from league rivals City on July 1 after deciding to call time on his career at the Etihad.

The versatile midfielder joined Manchester City in August 2010 in a deal worth £26 million from Aston Villa and went on to be part of the resurgence at City which saw Milner lift two Premier League trophies and one FA Cup title.

The Leeds-born player insists that he has no regrets leaving Manuel Pellegrini's side to join another club going through a rebuilding phase. 

"It's an amazing feeling." the England international told the club's website.

"It's always a big thing, obviously, changing club.

"To sign for a club as big as Liverpool with the history they've got and the place it is - I'm just ready to get started I suppose."

Milner admitted that he had spent time thinking about his decision to quit Manchester City for the Reds but the 29-year-old midfielder has no doubts about his decision.

"It's great to be here; over the summer you're thinking about it and wanting to get going once the decision has been made so it's great to come here."
