Scotland international left-back Andrew Robertson on Friday completed a £8 million move to Liverpool. “It feels a bit surreal but I’m delighted. There are not more special clubs than Liverpool,” he said.

The defender joined Hull from Dundee United for £2.85m in 2014 and made 39 appearances last season as the Tigers were relegated from the Premier League.

He added: “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 do good things for this club.”

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp added: “For Andrew, this is another big step on what has been a quite incredible personal journey in a very short space of time.

“I know our environment will benefit him and help him push himself even more than he has already. This is a player who does not limit his ambition.”

United will receive about £600,000 from the deal – paid over the next two or three years – as a sell-on clause for a player they signed from amateur club Queen’s Park in 2013.

Robertson is Liverpool’s third summer signing following the arrival of Roma winger Mohamed Salah and Chelsea striker Dominic Solanke.

Eight other Premier League sides, as well as PSV Eindhoven and Sporting Lisbon, were reportedly interested in the left-back.
