Sepp van den Berg expressed his happiness after joining Liverpool on Thursday.
The 17-year-old defender arrives from Dutch side PEC Zwolle for an initial fee of £1.3 million with add-ons that could potentially take the deal up to £4.4m.
Van den Berg, who will link up with Jurgen Klopp at Melwood for pre-season training on July 6, sent a message to Liverpool fans shortly after concluding the deal with the European champions.
In an Instagram post, the centre-half wrote he was really happy to sign for Liverpool.
“Words can’t describe how thankful I am. I feel honoured to say that I am now a Liverpool FC player!!
“I’m looking forward to next season, see you soon!”
The Reds saw off Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich to sign the talented teenager, while Dutch champions Ajax were also interested.
And in an interview with Liverpoolfc.com, Van den Berg described the switch as a “dream come true.”
He admitted: “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.”
In a separate post on his Instagram account on Thursday, the central defender thanked his former club for all their support to help him reach Anfield.
“I am very grateful to everyone for all the wonderful moments that I have been able to experience and how I have grown as a person and player.” he wrote.
“Without everyone around me and the fans this would never have happened.
Van den Berg becomes the fourth Dutchman in the ranks at Anfield and is the club’s first signing of the summer.
