Jurgen Klopp says he's looking forward to meeting Ben Davies, labelling the new Liverpool centre-back a "very interesting" signing.
The Reds made signing a centre-back a priority on deadline day after learning Joel Matip's injury is worse than first feared.
Liverpool were linked with a number of defenders over the course of Monday, and eventually secured Preston star Davies in a deal worth around £1.6million.
Reacting to the signing, Liverpool manager Klopp said: "Very interesting signing, I'm looking forward to meeting him finally.
"In the last few weeks/days we considered our situation of what we had to do. We looked all over in Europe. I saw Ben, I was interested."
Caleta-Car appeared to be the most likely candidate to join the Reds at the start of deadline day, but Marseille were unable to find a replacement for him and pulled the plug.
Without skipping a beat Liverpool turned their attention to Davies, and enticed him to the club with the promise of representing the champions.
Both Celtic and Bournemouth had been chasing the defender but were forced to admit defeat once Liverpool joined the race.
Defender Ozan Kabak was also signed by the Reds on deadline day, with Liverpool splashing out £1million to loan the Turkey star for the remainder of the season.
Liverpool have the option to make the deal permanent once the summer window opens.
