Van Dijk must now prove to Klopp he was worth Liverpool's hard-work
The Netherlands global was on the brink of joining the Merseyside club at the start of the season only for the transfer to fall through after the Reds were accused of making an alleged illegal approach.
Southampton manager Mauricio Pellegrino hasn't played Van Dijk in recent fixtures this month ahead of an impending move.
"I can't wait to pull on the famous red shirt for the first time in front of the Kop".
In terms of van Dijk's own payment, it is expected that he will be on anything from £180,000 a week upward.
The club posted a picture on their website of the Netherlands defender holding a Liverpool jersey, and said that he will join the team when the transfer window reopens Monday.
"Southampton have agreed a fee that will set a new world-record for a defender".
In return, Liverpool have forked out STG283 million ($A555 million) to the Saints.
"The club wishes Virgil well in his future when the deal is completed on January 1st 2018".
Liverpool did not ultimately make a formal offer to Southampton last summer but were ready to pay around £60 million after it became clear that Van Dijk wanted to join them.
"Despite a hard last few months, I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Saints and have made friends for life at the club".
"Thank you for all the messages of support".
Van Dijk will wear the No. 4 shirt upon his arrival at Anfield.
Former Liverpool player Collymore is staggered at the fee.
'It's a lot of money isn't it, ' he told Sky Sports.
"What can I say is Liverpool need defenders". "But if Liverpool can stop their creaking in big matches when put under pressure then it will be a good deal for Liverpool as well because people will forget about the money that has been spent in a year or two if they can win trophies and get the defence right".
Van Dijk, 26, has also been a target for Manchester City and Chelsea, but the Merseyside club have finally won the race for his signature after confirming the move on Wednesday (Thursday NZ time).
