Liverpool have agreed new £62.4million terms with their record signing

Virgil van Dijk has reportedly agreed to a new contract to remain at Anfield until the summer of 2025.

The Netherlands worldwide has earned himself a standing among the global elite with his performances since completing a record-setting £75 million ($93m) move to Anfield.

Aside from losing the Premier League silverware by a narrow margin to Pep Guardiola's Manchester City, the centre-back played a huge part in the heart of Liverpool defence as the Reds ended 2018-19 campaign with their sixth Champions League title.

Van Dijk has established himself as the most important player in the Liverpool FC team over the past 18 months or so since his move to the six-time European champions.

"You learn so much from him and there's no disgrace in saying I couldn't get in [the team] because of him because he is a top player". And then we will see where that brings us at the end of the season. "Nothing about him surprises me anymore". Van Dijk's most recent award was based on his performances for both the Netherlands and Liverpool, in which he beat Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

The UEFA Men's Player of the Year award was recently given to Van Dijk, adding to his exemplary trophy cabinet that already has Premier League Player of the Season award and the PFA Players' Player of the Year prize.

"It's little things like that that you wouldn't know unless you were up close day in, day out on the training pitch".

"I think it was unprofessional", the Dane continued to say when quizzed about his reaction to what the beIn Sports pundits thought.

Liverpool fans should be relishing the game's release after seven of their players, the same number of Reds who made it into the 2019 FIFA FIFPRO World XI shortlist, featured in the top 100. I've trained with him and he's probably the best goalkeeper I've trained with besides obviously Alisson.
