Liverpool have agreed a deal with PEC Zwolle for the transfer of Sepp van den Berg.

The 17-year-old defender has finalised terms on a long-term contract with the European champions.

The initial fee £1.3m but that could rise to £4.4m if Van den Berg makes a substantial amount of Premier League and European appearances.

Van den Berg told Liverpoolfc.com: "It’s just an amazing feeling.

"It is, for me, the biggest club in the world and it’s a dream come true. I am really excited.

"I’ve seen what kind of players from the Academy grew into the first team here. It is unbelievable, especially when this kind of big club does that.

"Of course, the trainer [Jürgen Klopp] is a great guy and one of the reasons they are successful – and also one of the reasons I came here.

"I think this is the best place for me to grow and hopefully play a lot of games here."

Van den Berg made his Eredivisie debut at the age of 16 in March 2018 and went on to make 15 league appearances for PEC Zwolle.

He has also been capped for the Netherlands at underage level, starting their last three European U19 Championship qualifiers.
