With a desire to increase the steel in his defence Liverpool manager Graeme Souness brought in West Ham United defender Julian Dicks with David Burrows and Mike Marsh travelling in the opposite direction.
Dicks’ time at Anfield proved short-lived, being hampered by injuries and he only appeared 24 times in the Barclays Premier League for Liverpool. He scored three times in those matches and his penalty against Ipswich Town on 9 April 1994 gave him the record of being the last Liverpool payer to score in front of the standing Kop, before the stand was made an all-seater.
In the summer Dicks was sold back to West Ham where was to make another 103 Barclays Premier League appearances.
