Liverpool have confirmed the signing of Andy Robertson from Hull City.
The 23-year-old defender has completed his switch to the Anfield giants for a fee in the region of £8 million, and the Scot will don the No. 26 shirt for the Reds in the upcoming season.
Upon the completion of his transfer, Robertson told Liverpool’s official website: “It feels a wee bit surreal just now. Obviously I’m delighted. There’s been a lot of speculation over the last couple of weeks but I’m glad that the deal’s finally been done and I’m a Liverpool player.
“My family are proud of what I’ve achieved so far and they’re all over the moon with the move, as well as me of course. We’re all just looking forward to being part of the Liverpool family now.
“There’s not many, if any, more special clubs than Liverpool. When you grow up as a kid you dream of playing with big clubs such as Liverpool and to make that a reality is a dream come true for me. I just want to prove to people that I can do it at this level, and hopefully I manage to do that this season and go on to do good things for this club.”
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp also had his say on his latest signing, by stating: “For Andrew this is another big step on what has been a quite incredible personal journey in a very short space of time. I love his story; where we has come from professionally to reach this point.
“When you speak to him it is clear why he makes his progress. He has a burning love for playing football – he really loves the game. His attitude is outstanding – absolutely outstanding. His talent and skills – also very, very good. He has experience of this competition, the Premier League, and he has the mentality and quality to get even better.”
