The Liverpool transfer chief is likely to step down from his role at Anfield when his contract expires in 2022. There no plans to renew.

That is, despite the brilliant work he has done at Liverpool since joining the club in 2011 from Tottenham. He become sporting director in 2016.

Since then, he has been responsible for the big-money sales of Philippe Coutinho and others – as well as the additions of Mo Salah, Alisson etc.

Virgil van Dijk and Sadio Mane, too. Brilliant signings, timely sales and for fees surprisingly more than expected. He has done a brilliant job.
