Liverpool FC have agreed a world record deal £75 million for Southampton defender Virgil van Dijk.

The two clubs have had very discreet discussions in recent days after the failure of a potential deal last summer.

The current world record signing for a defender is that of Kyle Walker last summer for £54m by Manchester City.

This deal will be level with Romelu Lukaku as the second biggest deal in Premier League history, behind Manchester United's £90m for Paul Pogba.

Van Dijk will join Liverpool on 1 January.
