The 25-year-old centre-back has put pen to paper on a deal with the Reds on Deadline Day to tie up his transfer from the Championship club and bolster Jurgen Klopp’s defensive ranks.
Sky Sports News understands Liverpool have paid £500,000 up front, with a potential £1.1million in add-ons.
Ben Davies told Liverpool’s official website: “I’m obviously delighted to be here. It’s a huge opportunity.
“Obviously it came as a bit of a surprise when it first came but once you start to get your head around it, the opportunity that is in front of me is incredible. I’d be silly to not make the most of it and learn off the players [at the club].
“I’ve never actually been to Anfield and I haven’t had a look around yet. I had a quick look out and had a look at the pitch and it looks like carpet, which obviously you’d expect.
“I haven’t actually walked out of the tunnel yet, so I’m looking forward to that. Just to be in this kind of atmosphere is brilliant.”
