Netherlands defender Virgil van Dijk has agreed a new six-year contract with European champions Liverpool this as reported by the Mirror.
The new deal which will run until 2025 will see his wages rise to £200,000 a week from his current £125,000-a-week.
World Record Fee
The Mirror claim Harry Maguire’s world-record £80m move from Leicester to Manchester United gave Van Dijk’s representatives leverage when negotiating a new deal with Liverpool for their client.
Van Dijk is currently on international duty and played the full 90 minutes as the Netherlands won 4-2 away at Germany on Friday night and has been one of the composing figures in the Liverpool defense.
His new contract could be officially announced when he returns to his club later next week and he will hope that his new deal gives the club rest in securing the future of the defense which has been consistent in the past one year.
