He may still, officially, be a Southampton player but Virgil Van Dijk has arrived at Anfield.

The Dutch defender was given a huge welcome outside Liverpool's ground ahead of their Premier League clash with Leicester City today.

Van Dijk turned up in a blacked out car in front of hundreds of baying Liverpool fans before making his way swiftly into the stadium.

Liverpool confirmed the signing of Van Dijk from Southampton on Wednesday, with the record fee for a defender viewed as evidence of the club's ambition to compete for the game's top players.
