Liverpool Football Club can confirm that Dirk Kuyt has advised the club that he has today reached an agreement with Fenerbahce SK over a move to Turkey, and the transfer is expected to be completed in the next few days.
The ever popular Dutchman, who is currently preparing for Euro 2012 with Holland, made a reputation for scoring big goals in big games for Liverpool.
He arrived at Anfield from Feyenoord in 2006 and made his debut against West Ham United, when he came on as a substitute for Peter Crouch during the 2-1 win.
He has made 285 appearances in a red shirt, firing 71 goals.
Notable strikes include one in the Champions League final against AC Milan, a magnificent hat-trick against Manchester United at Anfield and a strike during the Carling Cup triumph over Cardiff City at Wembley in February. He also netted a vital penalty during the dramatic shoot-out victory.
Kuyt fired a late FA Cup winner against Manchester United at Anfield last season and has also scored dramatic late winners in the Merseyside derby.
Everyone at Liverpool Football Club would like to wish Dirk all the very best for the future and thank him for his contribution to the club.
