The Nigerian-born Dutch youth international winger told Voetbalzone that he had rejected a new three-year deal because he was left out of Jurgen Klopp's squad for the pre-season tour of the USA with the party including several fringe players because of senior members being given time off after the World Cup finals.

Bobby Adekanye said: “That didn't happen in the end. That is disappointing and it has contributed to the fact that I do not want to renew my contract.

“If they promise such things and it doesn't happen, I don't know what will happen if I sign for three years.

“That confidence is no longer there, even though I still greatly respect the club.

“They don't just extend for three years, so maybe there was a schedule behind it. But I no longer have faith in that.

“In terms of money, things are fine, but you have nothing if there is no perspective behind it. The money will come later, I now need playing minutes.”
