LIVERPOOL have confirmed Adam Lallana and Nathaniel Clyne will leave – with the Premier League release lists announced.
The long-serving Reds duo were expected to leave the club, with their departures now official.
Lallana, 32, joined Liverpool from Southampton in 2014, with Clyne, 29, also arriving from the Saints, a year later, in 2015.
Clyne will leave the club on June 30 after his contract was not extended until the end of the season.
Lallana, however, will stay at Anfield until the Premier League campaign is completed after penning a short-term extension.
Daniel Atherton, Isaac Christie-Davies, Shamal George, Andy Lonergan, Kai McKenzie-Lyle and Jack Walls have also been released by the Reds
At one stage, Clyne was an integral figure in an otherwise shaky back-line at Anfield – and was a favourite of Klopp after he arrived.
However, a series of injuries saw him miss years of action – while the emergence of Trent Alexander-Arnold sorely hampered his chances of ever making the first-team again.
Lallana, meanwhile, has been a regular off the bench for Liverpool this season.
He even scored the late equaliser to ensure the Reds kept up their unbeaten record against Manchester United at Old Trafford earlier this season.
Lallana is now being linked with a move to Leicester which would see him reunited with former Kop boss Brendan Rodgers after 128 Premier League appearances for Liverpool.
Clyne – who played 77 times in the league for the Reds – has been linked with a move back to former club Crystal Palace.
