Liverpool Football Club would like to wish seven departing players all the very best of luck for the future.

Youngsters Yalany Baio, Villyan Bijev, Yusuf Mersin, Michael Ngoo, Craig Roddan, Stephen Sama and Jakub Sokolik have now left the Academy.

While the group will no longer report to the club's Kirkby training base, their former coaches and friends will continue to be in touch, helping them wherever possible along the way.
