English giants Liverpool FC announced that they have agreed a deal with Dutch Eredivisie side PEC Zwolle for the transfer of Sepp van den Berg on Thursday.

The 17-year-old defender has finalised terms on a long-term contract with the Reds after an agreement was reached with Zwolle.

The Netherlands under-19 international reflected on his big move to the 2018/19 UEFA Champions League winners.

“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," van den Berg 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," he added.

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

Van den Berg made 15 appearances in the Dutch top flight last season, helping Zwolle to a 13th place finish.

He is also an international for the Netherlands at U19 level, winning four caps to date.
