So it’s finally happened.

The Dutch international, who has been linked with a move to Liverpool all summer, claimed he “had no alternative” but to take this action.

Adding: “Over the past six months I have held numerous discussions with representatives of the board, the former manager Claude Puel as well as the new manager Mauricio Pellegrino to inform them all of my desire to leave the club in search of a new challenge.”
