Young Dutch defender Sepp van den Berg is due to undergo a medical today ahead of his proposed move to join Liverpool.

According to the Telegraph, the PEC Zwolle defender is closing in on a move to Anfield, as the Reds look to add another Dutch defender to their ranks.

Van den Berg has been heavily linked with a move to Anfield and it now appears to be a matter of when and not if the deal is confirmed.

The Reds have done well to secure his services for a reported fee of £1.79 million, given the likes of Bayern Munich and Ajax were both keen to sign the youngster.

Van den Berg is not expected to feature heavily in the first-team squad next season and should be considered as one for the future, but it remains a major coup for the club to see off European competition in the race to sign him.
