Liverpool and Elijah Dixon-Bonner agree to split

Liverpool midfielder Elijah Dixon-Bonner is leaving at the end of the season.

The 21-year-old has reached an agreement with the club to depart, having spent seven years at the Academy after arriving from Arsenal in 2015, reports the Liverpool Echo.

Dixon-Bonner was part of the side that won the FA Youth Cup in 2019 and also featured in the UEFA Youth League before making the step up from the under-18s to the U23s.

He made his senior debut as a late substitute in the FA Cup fourth round replay win over Shrewsbury Town in February 2020 having been on the bench for the League Cup quarter-final defeat at Aston Villa two months earlier.

This season, Dixon-Bonner - who has trained with the first-team - played in the EFL Trophy and also came off the bench in the League Cup win at Preston North End. He made his sole Liverpool start in the FA Cup win over Shrewsbury at Anfield in January, playing a part in the build-up to the equalising goal for Kaide Gordon. He was also in the matchday squad for the Champions League group stage win at AC Milan in December.
