Gini Wijnaldum will leave Liverpool on the expiry of his contract.
The Dutch midfielder confirms that he will leave the Reds after his five-year stay with the Merseyside club.
Sunday’s 2-0 win over Crystal Palace was Wijnaldum’s 237th and final game for the Reds as he hopes to seek a new adventure in his career.
He will leave in the summer for free and will possibly join Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich.

‘It’s really special. The fans have sung my name. Week-in, week-out they saw I was giving 100% to give everything for this club,’ Wijnaldum said after the Palace match.
‘That’s what the supporters want to see and that’s what they appreciate from me. It is something I’m going to miss.
‘I’m fighting against tears right now. The people in Liverpool have shown me love during the five years. I will miss them, you know.
‘I knew I went to a big club. I remember that I was sitting in the living room and the manager said when I come to Liverpool we would win prizes. I am happy it went that well. It would have been really painful to leave the club without any.
‘We will see what I will do in the next couple of weeks. I will rest a little bit then go to the national team. I will have to look at my story and how everything went. The fans deserve to know the story behind it.’
