Liverpool defender completes transfer after turning down new contract

Yasser Larouci has completed his move from Liverpool to the French Ligue one

The Liverpool defender penned a five-year deal with Ligue 1 outfit, Troyes - who are owned by the City Football Group that controls Manchester City - having made a free transfer after rejecting a new contract with the Reds.

20-year-old Larouci informed Liverpool 12 months ago he wouldn't extend his Anfield stay and resisted attempts to persuade him to change his mind before leaving at the end of last month.

Brentford and Leeds United had shown interest in the Algerian last summer but opted not to follow up with a concrete move for the left-back, who joined Liverpool from Le Havre aged 16.

Larouci made two FA Cup appearances for Liverpool in 2020, coming off the bench as an early substitute in the third round win over Everton and then starting at Shrewsbury Town in the next round.

He played twice in the EFL Trophy and was part of the Reds side that won the FA Youth Cup in 2019. However, he featured only twice for the under-23s last season with his last appearance coming in a brief substitute appearance last October.
