      Liverpool agree deal to sign Virgil van Dijk



      Liverpool Football Club can confirm they have reached an agreement with Southampton for the transfer of Virgil van Dijk.

      The Reds have agreed a deal with the south coast club, and the player himself, that will see the 26-year-old defender move to Anfield when the transfer window re-opens on January 1, 2018.

      The Netherlands international will be assigned squad number four, upon his arrival at Liverpool.

      Welcome to the club Virgil.

      Exactly what we need, and Klopp finally got his man by the looks of it.

      Good to see us learning from our mistakes and getting this one done at the next available opportunity.

      Really hope the lad proves me wrong and turns out to be a great signing.

      It’s like Saints just wanted us to struggle defensively for another few months before letting us have him.

      Tell you what though....that is a huge Winter window signing and a statement of intent from the club.

      Brilliant that he's joined :)
      Particularly when you think City and others were interested.
      Unbelievable amount of money for a defender, Suarez type money - is he that good? Sure hope so ;)
      Will likely take him time to get back into his best form, so it's good that we get the half season to bed him in.
      At last we came through and got the deal done.
      Wonder if this means Cou goes in Jan...

      VVD should be taking penalties and free kicks. He's good at set pieces.

      I’m as certain as I’ve been over any signing in the last 20 years that - injury permitting - this lad will go on to be a stalwart, a star and potentially a legend.

      I watched enough of him over a couple seasons at Celtic - my eldest and the wife have season tickets - to recognise absolute quality.

      Welcome Virgil.

      Stand tall kid, this is the land of giants. You’ll fit right in.

      Difficult one with my local club (and 2nd favourite team) being Celtic. Was clear to see his abilities then and could have been picked up at a fraction of the price a few years back. Shame about the attitude towards Scottish football and the fact that people ignore clear talent because teams can’t afford to spend tens of millions.

      Anyway, the money isn’t coming out of my pocket so welcome to the club Virgil.

      Especially before the transfer window has even opened. I’m glad I was wrong but this is what I was expecting from City, not us.

      Well in by the club getting this done. No pissing around at all.

      Neville having a pop at the fee. After his former club let a player go for free to then bring him back for best part of 100mill.

      Boss news! Only just seen this! Delighted and great to see the club get it done no fuss right before the window opens. Just need to ensure we kept hold of Coutinho and it's a cracking window in my book. Expect we'll see a couple go out mind

      Can't wait for us to ruin his defensive abilities! ;)

      Seriously though, on paper a great signing.  Expecting this as the precursor to a Coutinho departure but in all seriousness it is a position that we were just uncompetitive at and needed strengthening.

      Glad we finally got the man. 

      Even if we had him in the summer, given Man City's form, it's likely we still wouldn't be anywhere near them so I think we can all put to one side the farce of the summer.

      Welcome to Liverpool.

      Is he any good between the sticks?.
