Liverpool forward Dirk Kuyt has completed his move to Fenerbahce, the English club have announced.
The Dutch international earlier suggested that he could leave Anfield in search of first team football, after losing his starting berth under Kenny Dalglish.
Feyenoord and Hamburger SV have been mentioned as possible destinations, but Turkish giants Fenerbahce ended up winning the race for the player’s signature.
The English Premier League side have announced the transfer via their Twitter account.
“Liverpool Football Club can confirm that Dirk Kuyt has advised the club that he has today reached an agreement with Fenerbahçe SK over a move to Turkey, and the transfer is expected to be completed in the next few days.
“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.”
Dirk Kuyt joined the Reds in an €18 million deal from Feyenoord in August 2006, and he quickly developed into a key player at Anfield.
However, the 31-year-old has lost his starting place last season and decided to leave the club in search for first team football.
The experienced forward, who is set to take part at the European Championship with Netherlands, has amassed a total of 34 Premier League appearances this season, scoring two goals in the process.
