Liverpool have confirmed that Dutch forward Dirk Kuyt has agreed a three-year deal with Turkish club Fenerbahce, and the transfer is expected to be wrapped in the coming few days, for a fee in excess of £1m according to the British media.
Kuyt found starting places hard to come by under Kenny Dalglish, and made most of his appearances as a substitute during Dalglish’s reign. The 31-year-old Kuyt was known for his industry, and insurmountable work ethic, but was more often than not played out of position, on the right wing. But, the acquisition of Jordan Henderson saw him make infrequent starts in the side.
He arrived from Dutch side Feyenoord, in 2005, and has made 285 appearances, and scoring 71 goals in the process.
A statement on the official Liverpool website stated that :
“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.”
