JUST IN: Liverpool defender Van Dijk undergoes successful knee surgery

Liverpool has confirmed defender Virgil van Dijk has undergone successful surgery on his knee and is set to start rehabilitation. 

Van Dijk suffered a knee injury during Liverpool's 2-2 draw with Everton following a reckless challenge from Jordan Pickford. The defender was later assessed and it was revealed that he is set to miss the remainder of the season. 

The Reds have now confirmed the Dutchman has undergone a successful knee injury and he will be on the sidelines for the remainder of the campaign. 

"The Liverpool defender’s planned operation took place in London and was conducted successfully," a statement from the club read. 

"Van Dijk will now immediately focus on the beginning of his rehabilitation with the support of the Reds’ medical department." 

Jurgen Klopp's men will be up against West Ham United on Saturday in a Premier League encounter.
