Liverpool midfielder Pedro Chirivella has posted a goodbye message to the club, with the player set to leave Anfield following the expiry of his contract later this month.
The Spaniard joined the club's academy seven years ago, and had been on the fringes of the first-team in the past few seasons, making just ten senior appearances in total.
The youngster had already announced his intention to leave the club at the end of his deal - rather than sign a short-term extension until the end of the season - in order to join Ligue 1 side Nantes ahead of French football's restart later this year.
The 23-year-old has been shipped out on loan on a few occasions, heading to Holland for spells at Go Ahead Eagles and Willem II as well as with Extremadura UD in Spain.
The midfielder has posted a heartfelt message of thanks to the Merseyside club on his Twitter account, saying: "There comes a time to say goodbye, and I had no other feelings but gratefulness and a sense of honour to have been part of a special club.
"Without a doubt I feel privileged to have had the opportunity of living unexplainable matters such as playing in the world's best stadium or feeling all the support from the most astounding fans on Earth."
The former Valencia youth team player went on to add his thanks to the coaching staff throughout his time at Liverpool, adding: "Neil Critchley and Alex Inglethorpe from the Academy and Pep Ljinders, Jurgen Klopp and Brendan Rodgers from Melwood, who gave me the opportunity to debut in such a club like LFC."
