Liverpool have confirmed that Daniel Agger has left the club to join Danish side Brondby.

Agger was declared surplus to requirements at Anfield by boss Brendan Rodgers, but made clear he was only willing to leave Anfield to return to his former club, Brondby.

Now the 29-year-old has sealed a return to the Danish Superliga outfit and has been quick to express his delight.

"Liverpool have been such a big part of my life and my family's lives for so long, that leaving is extremely difficult", he told Liverpool's site.


"The opportunity arose for me to return home to Brondby and at this stage of my career it felt like the right decision for me.


"I wouldn't leave here to go anywhere else and that has been proven by my actions in recent seasons – I have turned down many offers to move to other Premier League and European clubs.

"I would like to thank the Liverpool supporters for the incredible backing they have given me in my time here and the warmth and generosity of spirit displayed to my family."

Agger joined Liverpool from Brondby in January 2006 and was vice-captain at Anfield under Steven Gerrard.
