"The 25-year-old Croatian international today put pen to paper on a long-term deal with the Reds after completing his medical."
After completing his switch to Brendan Rodgers' side, Lovren - who scored the winning goal for Saints at Anfield last season - told Liverpoolfc.com: "It's a dream come true. I'm happy and glad to be here. I'm proud and can't wait to start. I know we have millions and millions of supporters - Liverpool is more than a club.
"After I played at Anfield last season, I said to myself: 'One day I hope I'll be able to play here for Liverpool'. The fans will know from the first minute that I'm a player that will give 100 per cent on the pitch."
On that previous appearance at Anfield, Lovren added: "Jose Fonte, my defensive partner at Southampton, told me to listen to 'You'll Never Walk Alone' before the first whistle and to enjoy the moment. It was really amazing - I had chills on my arms and it's something that I will never forget. I want to listen to that song every other weekend."
