Liverpool striker Florent Sinama-Pongolle's loan spell at Recreativo Huelva has become a 2.7m permanent move.

Sinama-Pongolle, 22, has signed a contract until June 2011 with the Primera Liga club.

The France Under-21 international's loan, which began at the end of the season, contained an option to buy him.

He told Recreativo's website: "I'd like to thank the club and the fans for the affection they have shown me."

Sinama-Pongolle was bought by Liverpool from Le Havre in 2001 along with distant cousin Anthony Le Tallec, but both remained with the French club until 2003.

Neither were able to hold down a regular first-team place and Sinama-Pongolle spent the second half of last season out on loan at Blackburn.

Recreativo president Francisco Mendoza said: "Today is a very happy day for all those connected with Recreativo.

"We have waited for the moment of seeing Sinama as a member of the club.

"We have obtained him by putting in the most important financial push of this organisation in its 118-year history."
