Southampton report Liverpool to Premier League over Virgil Van Dijk interest

Southampton report Liverpool to Premier League over Virgil Van Dijk interest

The transfer row is the second this year involving Liverpool, who received a two-year ban on signing Academy players from other English clubs after accepting they made an illegal approach for a 12-year-old attached to Stoke City.

Football journalist Andy Brassell then correctly stated that the fee is nearly irrelevant, because Liverpool can afford it and there aren't many great central defenders available.

Unfortuantely Southampton are not as buoyant, and plan to report Liverpool to the Premier League for making an illegal approach for the player, The BBC report.

In 2015, director of football Les Reed infamously claimed Clyne was close to signing a new contract, weeks before the England right-back completed that well-trodden journey from Hampshire to the North West.

As a result, Liverpool have tonight released a statement apologising for "any misunderstanding" and declaring that their interest in Van Dijk is at an end. The south-coast club were reportedly "irritated by what they see as an attempt to unsettle Van Dijk and are ready to reject an official offer".

Last month, Southampton chairman Ralph Krueger told PA Sport that the club could turn down even a £60-million bid for the defender.

Babies who began sleeping in their own room somewhere in between 4 to 9 months old also slept longer, for a median of 10 hours. Risks for SIDS include sleeping in the same bed as parents, loose bedding, sleeping face-down and living at home with a smoker.

The Anfield side have been linked with a £60million move for the Dutch worldwide centre-half, who is understood to have told them he prefers a move to Merseyside ahead of Chelsea and Manchester City.

But Liverpool are confident the player's desire to move to Anfield will ultimately hold sway, with van Dijk keen to be part of the Reds' future under Jurgen Klopp.

In the last few minutes, it has also been reported that the Premier League will not be taking any action against Liverpool.

Top European clubs will tend not to buy from Scotland due to the perceived weakness of the league as a whole, so having a sell-on clause is a smart way of recouping money from the departure of star players.

Southampton have become a favoured hunting ground for Liverpool in the past three years having signed five players - including Adam Lallana and Senegalese star Sadio Mane - for a total of nearly £100million.
