Liverpool reach mutual agreement with midfielder over summer exit despite player sharing image kissing FA Cup trophy

Liverpool midfielder Elijah Dixon-Bonner has agreed to leave the club this summer just days after being presented with the FA Cup trophy.

The 21-year-old played just once in the tournament but was an impressive figure in Liverpool’s 4-1 win over Shrewsbury Town in the 3rd Round.

Ahead of the trip to Wembley where Chelsea were once again defeated on penalties, Jurgen Klopp praised the likes of Dixon-Bonner for their contribution to the Reds’ domestic cup campaign.

“That’s what I love most about it: that we really can say we are here, we arrived in the final and we used the full squad pretty much, and the extended squad if you want,” Klopp reflected.

“Massive experience for the boys, for Kaide, for Elijah…my God! I can remember his face when he came on and all these kind of things.

“It’s just great and the boys, the first-team players, they see it exactly the same.

“Always when you have this kind of journey it brings you closer together.”

Part of Klopp’s world-class management is making sure the likes of Divock Origi and Takumi Minamino feel special but that extends to players on the very fringes like EDB.

The 21-year-old took to Twitter after the final to share images of him with the FA Cup trophy.

However, despite sharing the career milestone on social media, reports suggest that he won’t be a Red for much longer as the summer transfer window approaches.

According to Football Insider sources, “Dixon-Bonner has mutually agreed not to take up the option to extend his deal.”

Dixon Bonner’s contract expires at the end of next month and while he has a clause which gives him the chance to extend his terms a further 12 months, he has agreed to leave at the end of the season.
