Raul Meireles has accepted he is leaving Liverpool this summer.

The Daily Mail says Meireles is resigned to leaving Liverpool this summer after it became apparent he is surplus to requirements.

The Portugal international is understood to be frustrated that talks over a new deal have not taken place but Liverpool never made any firm promises.

There was a loose agreement when he arrived last summer from FC Porto that his situation would be revisited at the end of his first season if things went well.
