Premier League side Liverpool have agreed a deal to sign defender Sepp van den Berg from PEC Zwolle.
The 17-year-old defender has finalised terms on a long-term contract with the Reds after an agreement was reached with the Eredivisie club and will move to Anfield on July 1, with the move subject to international clearance.
“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,” he said.
“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,” he added.
He made 15 appearances in the Dutch top flight last season, helping Zwolle to a 13th place finish.
