Liverpool midfielder Pedro Chirivella has completed a deadline day loan move to Spanish side Extremadura.
Chirivella, who made his debut for the first-team back in September 2015, turned down a permanent move to Rosenborg in the summer and had been linked with Championship sides Nottingham Forest and Swansea this month.
However, the 21-year-old has instead returned to his native Spain for the rest of the season to second-tier Extremadura.
Signed from Valencia in 2013, Chirivella hasn’t made a competitive appearance for Liverpool since May 2016.
Instead, he has been a regular for the Reds’ under-23s, making the joint most appearances this season.
The Spaniard becomes the third player to leave Anfield on deadline day, with fellow under-23s regulars Matty Virtue – permanent move to Blackpool – and Liam Miller – loan to Kilmarnock – also departing.
Another who also remains on Merseyside is Lazar Markovic. The Serbian’s contract is up in the summer and he’ll finally leave Anfield then.
